Analysing sovereign risk for portfolio management decisions

RELATED TOPICS​

London, 12-13 June, 2012 – A seminar providing an overview of the historical background and the recent trends of sovereign risks, as well as an analysis of sovereign risk in bond portfolios, and discussing both the assessment and the monitoring of sovereign risk in a global equity portfolio.

Drawing on the expertise developed at the EDHEC-Risk Institute, the first part of the seminar will provide participants with an overview of the historical background and the recent trends of sovereign risks, as well as an analysis of sovereign risk in bond portfolios. The second part of the seminar discusses both the assessment and the monitoring of sovereign risk in a global equity portfolio.

The programme is intended for investment management professionals who advise on or participate in the design and implementation of portfolio construction models, and for sell-side practitioners who develop new portfolio construction solutions for investors. The seminar will also be insightful for investment professionals who analyse or decide on the adoption of appropriate model portfolios or benchmarks for bond and equity investments or who are interested in customising their strategic benchmark.

Seminar Instructors:
Felix Goltz, Head of Applied Research, EDHEC-Risk Institute
Fahd Rachidy, Senior Quantitative Financial Analyst, EDHEC-Risk Institute
Thierry Roncalli, Head of Research and Development at Lyxor Asset Management
