[Webinar] Intangible Capital in Factor Models - Presenting research findings from the EDHEC Scientific Beta "Advanced Factor & ESG Investing" Research Chair

The EDHEC Scientific Beta "Advanced Factor & ESG Investing" Research Chair was set up to transfer academic knowledge to the investment industry by providing high-quality research for decision-makers in the professional area. The primary motivation for the research chair is to respond to real-world questions regarding factor investing with research that is recognised for its scientific quality.

At a special webinar to be held on December 14, 2020 at 3pm GMT / 10am EST, we will present the research findings of the first research chair publication entitled "Intangible Capital in Factor Models," in which the authors study the impact of increasingly substantial intangible capital on popular asset pricing models.

This study is among the first to examine the asset pricing implication of incorporating off-balance-sheet intangible assets to address the potentially distorting effects of fully expensing R&D and SG&A on measuring value, profitability, and investment.

The webinar will be scheduled as follows:
