Program Description:
During the global financial crisis, investors learned a hard lesson about how interconnected and concentrated risks can quickly overwhelm portfolio allocation strategies in periods of extreme market volatility.

Since then, powerful new risk-factor- and valuation-factor-based allocation approaches have been evolving to help investment managers better analyze the interaction of global investments under different market scenarios and make more opportunistic long-term allocations.

This popular conference gathers experienced investors focused on major new developments in the dynamic allocation of multi-asset-class, multi-strategy global portfolios. Speakers will explore new frameworks for allocating risk capital globally with an emphasis on building strong investment decision-making processes and increasing diversification.
