From 6 pm onwards, Professor Stoyanov will be giving a talk entitled ‘A Post-Crisis Framework for Investment Management, "Diversification matters but not for loss control."
Since the global financial crisis of 2008, improving risk management practices -management of extreme risks, in particular- has been a hot topic. During this talk, Stoyanov will cover the following points:
  • Advantages and limitations of diversification as a tool for portfolio construction and risk management.
  • Related practices in the investment management industry: the dominance of cap-weighted indices.
  • Smart Beta: a post-crisis innovation providing superior risk-adjusted performance over the long-run.
  • Risks associated with Smart Beta strategies: relative risks, systematic risks, and strategy specific risks.

Looking forward to meeting you there!
