The seminars provide relevant academic insights with respect to some of the most important dimensions of the investment process, including implementing disciplined risk and asset allocation decisions, efficiently harvesting factor risk premia across and within traditional and alternative asset classes, and designing truly meaningful forms of liability-driven or goal-based investment solutions.
