Presentation :

Any investment process should start with a thorough understanding of the investor problem. Individual investors do not need investment products with alleged superior performance; they need investment solutions that can help them meet their goals subject to prevailing dollar and risk budget constraints. In this new publication, EDHEC-Risk Institute develops a general operational framework that can be used by financial advisors to allow individual investors to optimally allocate to categories of risks they face across all life stages and wealth segments so as to achieve personally meaningful financial goals. This research was conducted with the support of Merrill Lynch Wealth Management as part of EDHEC-Risk Institute’s research chair on a “Risk Allocation Framework for Goal-Driven Investing Strategies.”
