EDHEC-Risk Institute and CACEIS launch research chair on risk assessment and performance reporting

RELATED TOPICS​

CACEIS and EDHEC-Risk Institute have created a new research chair entitled “New Frontiers in Risk Assessment and Performance Reporting.”

 
This new three-year chair will follow on from the previous CACEIS research chair at EDHEC-Risk Institute on “Risk and Regulation in the European Fund Management Industry.”
 
Led by Professor Noël Amenc (pictured), director of EDHEC-Risk Institute, and Professor Lionel Martellini, scientific director of EDHEC-Risk Institute, the research chair team will examine new advances in risk measurement and reporting. The goal is to explore, for the benefit of institutional investors and asset managers, both new concepts and innovative applications of concepts that are popular in the investment world.
 
The chair will focus on two major ideas:
 
•             The consequences for the reporting of both institutional investors and asset managers of the change in conceptual paradigm from asset allocation to risk allocation, increasingly present within institutional investment and asset management, which is leading to a focus no longer on categories of assets but on categories of risk.
•             An improvement in extreme risk measures and reporting for funds and institutional investment management.
 
Jean-Marc Eyssautier, chief risk and compliance officer for CACEIS Group and member of the CACEIS executive committee, says: “CACEIS is delighted to support a new chair at EDHEC-Risk Institute on ‘New Frontiers in Risk Assessment and Performance Reporting’. We believe that this work will result in another step forward for our business as it is at the crossroads of the needs of our clients (which are constantly growing due to regulatory changes) and the services a major Custody and Depositary player should be able to offer the asset management industry.”
 
Amenc says: “With the support of CACEIS, we very much look forward to advancing research in the different areas covered by this new research chair – improved risk reporting, by shifting from asset allocation to risk factor allocation; enhanced risk measurement for diversified equity portfolios; and better geographic segmentation for equity investing.”
