The Edhec Risk and Asset Management Research Centre and Crédit Agricole Structured Asset Management have announced the creation of a research chair entitled Core-Satellite and ET

The Edhec Risk and Asset Management Research Centre and Crédit Agricole Structured Asset Management have announced the creation of a research chair entitled Core-Satellite and ETF Investment.

The chair will involve three years of academic research into exchange-traded funds and the use of ETFs as part of a core-satellite approach to asset management. A Casam/Edhec advisory board will supervise the work.

The team of researchers at the Edhec Risk and Asset Management Research Centre, under the leadership of centre director Noël Amenc, will examine advanced forms of risk budgeting in a dynamic core-satellite approach and the use of these techniques by investors and asset managers.

‘Casam has chosen to offer investors a range of high-quality ETFs which are among the most cost efficient on the market. As a result of both the new ‘Casam ETF’ range and our partnership with the Edhec Risk and Asset Management Research Centre, we will bring our clients real added value, from an economic point of view and in terms of investment strategy,’ says Fathi Jerfel, chief executive of Casam (pictured).

Amenc, director of the Edhec Risk and Asset Management Research Centre, says: ‘In earlier editions of the Edhec European ETF Survey we have shown how institutional investors can actively manage a portfolio of ETFs. This new gesture of support from Casam will enable us to take this work into the field of dynamic portfolio management, to the benefit of investors.’

The first project as part of the chair will be the Edhec ETF Survey 2009, an in-depth pan-European survey on the use of ETFs by European investors. The findings of this survey will be presented at the third ETF and Indexation Summit at Edhec Institutional Days, to be held in Paris on 26 and 27 May 2009.
