EDHEC-Risk Smart Beta Day: the international event for Asset owners and financial consultants

Written on 30 November 2017.


More than 90 Institutionnal Investors and Consultants attended the EDHEC-Risk Smart Beta Day which took place on 21 November in Amsterdam. The conference focused on risk management in smart beta and more particularly in factor investing. Good risk management implies accounting for the variations of beta and risk premia of the different factors to which the investor wants to be exposed whether in terms of long only or long/short strategies. The event presents the research carried out by EDHEC-Risk Institute Scientific Beta, provider of a smart beta indices platform to help investors understand and invest in advanced beta equity strategies.

The next editions of the EDHEC-Risk Smart Beta Day will occur in New-York City on 6 December and in London on 20 March. Like the previous event, these one-day conferences will "include multiple plenary sessions allowing professionals to review major industry challenges, explore state-of-the-art investment techniques and benchmark practices to advances in research."

A video recording of the conference will be made available soon.
