Noël Amenc founded EDHEC-Risk Institute in 2001 and enabled the institute, which is part of EDHEC Business School, to become one of the leading centres for applied research for the investment industry worldwide, with a presence not only in Nice, France, but also in London and Singapore, and research and executive education partnerships with CFA Institute, Yale School of Management and Princeton University.
Professor Amenc’s resignation will be effective as of August 1, 2015. At that date, Professor Lionel Martellini, who has been fulfilling the role of Scientific Director at EDHEC-Risk Institute, will succeed him as Director.
Professor Amenc will continue to head up ERI Scientific Beta, the smart beta index provider set up by EDHEC-Risk Institute at the end of 2012, which becomes an entity that is autonomous from the institute.
