UBS exec gives EDHEC students a lesson on asset management

Written on 02 October 2013.

Stephane Deo, Global Head of Macro Strategy and Asset Allocation at UBS, was the keynote speaker at a Welcome Session for new MSc Risk and Investment Management students on Sept. 19 on EDHEC Business School’s London campus.

Mr. Deo presented UBS’s current views on global asset allocation, focusing more particularly on the Federal Reserve’s QE exit strategy; the economic prospects and valuation of European equity markets; and the structural difficulties and squeeze of profit margins faced by emerging-market companies.

A lively debate followed Mr. Deo’s presentation, with students asking questions and presenting alternative views. Sessions such as this allow students to learn more about possible career paths and the skill sets required to pursue them, as well as a better understanding of specific risk management and investment topics. More sessions such as this are in the planning stages.

Mr. Deo has worked at UBS since 2011. Prior to that, he worked Goldman Sachs and at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. Mr. Deo holds a PhD in finance from HEC. He also completed a post-doctoral year at the Haas School for Business at the University of California, Berkeley.
