New York, NY (PRWEB) June 18, 2013
In an idea-packed session, industry leaders will address the latest approaches to managing the risks, returns, and interconnectedness of multi-asset portfolios in this new economy at NYSSA’s Asset Allocation and Beyond on June 27, 2013.
The face of asset allocation has permanently changed. In the aftermath of the 2008 crisis, many investment managers realized that time-tested approaches no longer worked. At this event, finance professionals will explore how to define and discern risks inherent in investment portfolios; learn practical techniques for managing and identifying risks inherent in diversified portfolios; deepen professional networks by engaging with other participants and the speakers; and students especially will gain exposure to ideas not frequently addressed in the classroom.
Each speaker will discuss an asset allocation issue in individual presentations:
- Mila Getmansky Sherman, Associate Professor of Finance, Isenberg School of Management, UMass Amherst
- Wesley Gray, PhD, Assistant Professor of Finance, Drexel University LeBow College of Business
- Phil Hodges, PhD, Director, BlackRock Global Market Strategies Group
- Attilio Meucci, CFA, Chief Risk Officer and Director of Portfolio Construction, Kepos Capital, LP; Founder, SYMMYS
Asset Allocation and Beyond will be held on Thursday, June 27, 2013 from 9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. at NYSSA Conference Center, 1540 Broadway, Suite 1010, New York, NY 10036.
