As part of its policy of transferring know-how to the industry, EDHEC-Risk Institute has set up ERI Scientific Beta, a new initiative to promote greater transparency not only of the benefits, but also of the risks and limitations of new forms of weighting equity indices.
Since we believe that smart beta is a new frontier for the investment industry, research and education on this subject are a core part of ERI Scientific Beta's strategy.
That is why we are inviting you to view the Choose Your Smart Beta webinar on measuring and selecting the risks of a smart beta investment that was held on Tuesday July 2, 2013,
and conducted by Felix Goltz, PhD, Research Director, ERI Scientific Beta and Head of Applied Research, EDHEC-Risk Institute.
The webinar covered:
- Systematic risk and strategy specific-risk of smart beta equity strategies
- Beyond embedded solutions: risk control in new forms of equity indices
- Controlling relative performance risk
The webinar is available to all free of charge. It can be accessed by clicking here.
