EDHEC-Risk is pleased to announce the launch of its refreshed website, dedicated to investment professionals who are looking for cutting-edge investment research and industry practices.
Created in 2001, EDHEC-Risk Institute has become the premier academic centre for industry-relevant financial research.
Through our multi-faceted programmes of research, outreach, education and industry partnerships, our ambition is to support industry players, both asset owners and asset managers, in their efforts to transition towards a novel, welfare-improving, investment management paradigm.
In the fast-evolving environment facing the investment industry, we thought it was about time our research centre’s website reflected our ambitions, and we have spent the past few weeks developing a brand new homepage that focuses on our two main areas of expertise: retirement investing and sustainable investing, to explore interrelated aspects of investment management and reflecting our motto #MakingFinanceUsefulAgain.
EDHEC-Risk Institute runs a strategic research programme on retirement solutions.
The available investment products distributed by asset managers or insurance companies
hardly provide a satisfying response to the needs of investors and households in retirement.
Academia can provide new insights into how best to design improved retirement solutions
with a focus on replacement income.
As part of our efforts to help investors and asset managers adequately deal with these new risk factors,
EDHEC-Risk Institute has launched an ambitious programme on sustainable investing that will explore
the impact of climate change on asset prices and examine the measurement and management of
climate-related risks in investors’ portfolios:
1. Impact on Climate Change of Financing and Investment Decisions – Leading expert Gianfranco Gianfrate
2. Impact of Climate Change on Asset Prices and Risk Management – Leading expert Riccardo Rebonato
But none of this expertise would have been possible without our extensive past research on Risk Premia Harvesting, a new section available on our website in the Knowledge Centre section, which offers insightful research (publication, indices, press articles) covering the following asset classes:
* Fixed Income
* Real Estate
* Hedge Funds
