On the first day, the Passive Investment and Smart Beta Conference focused on passive investment and smart beta strategies. The latest research results on smart beta risk allocation solutions, factor-based investment strategies, robustness and live performance of smart beta as well as current misconceptions in smart beta investing was presented. The conference was also be the occasion to discover the results of the latest European ETF survey.

On the second day, the Institutional Money Management Conference presented research of great interest to institutional investors on new frontiers in retirement solutions, multi-dimensional risk and performance analysis, active allocation and smart beta, hedge fund investing and multi-asset allocation solutions.

Day two also included the EDHECinfra Forum presenting the latest research results on infrastructure investing from the EDHEC Infrastructure Investment Institute. The forum opened with a round table including the participation of industry experts and will look at how investors invest in infrastructure.

The EDHEC Risk Days are a great way to meet top professionals from a wide area of expertise and to take part in hands-on workshops on very interesting research topics presented by excellent EDHEC staff. What I find most appealing is the practicality of the research, in other words – you can really use the outcomes and models in your everyday profession. Visiting the EDHEC Risk Days helps me to stay on top of my field.”
