Modern Asset Allocation & Portfolio Construction

This program covers the latest trends in quantitative modeling for asset allocation and portfolio construction, using new approaches that move away from static asset class investing to a dynamic process considering risk factors and regime changes.

Innovations suggested over the last ten years are contrasted with current industry practice and illustrated with examples with an eye for practical implementation.

Six practical workshops simulate real-life key decisions in asset allocation and portfolio construction. Mathematical concepts are discussed and illustrated using Excel spreadsheets that delegates can take away.
