Focus on regulation and new indices at Edhec-Risk forum in Monaco


At the fourth edition of the Edhec-Risk Institutional Days conference at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco on 8-9 December, Edhec-Risk Institute will be presenting research results on two key themes for the investment industry: regulation and indices.

The conference will open with a session that will bring together institutional investors and regulators for a debate on the impact of regulations on the financial management of pension funds.

This session will include the results of an exclusive survey of the asset-liability management practices of European pension funds.

The second day of the conference will feature separate sessions on:

– “Regulation and non-financial risks in the European fund industry: should we manage non-financial risks or insure them?” which will address questions such as how we can judge whether regulations are appropriately designed, what we can expect from the oversight of depositories and what we can expect from other actors in the value chain, and
– “Managing risk with sovereign wealth funds,” which will look at managing macroeconomic risks and the impact of short-term constraints

Results of research into new equity and fixed income indices will be highlighted at the Indexation and Passive Investment Conference, with featured presentations on alternatives to cap-weighted indices, currently available fixed-income indices in the corporate bond universe, the relationship between exchange-traded funds and efficient markets, and an exclusive survey on the use of indices by institutional investors.

The Indexation and Passive Investment Conference will also include a presentation of the Edhec-Risk European ETF Survey 2010 by Edhec-Risk Institute and workshops on ETFs by conference partners Amundi ETF, db x-trackers, Lyxor ETF and Tobam.
