Portfolio Optimisation & Diversification for the Buy-Side - 2 day Course
Since the financial crisis, risk management has become a key priority for many buy-side firms. This course has been designed especially for these firms in order to give attendees a thorough understanding of the modern portfolio theory and how it is applied. During the course, modelling and optimisation techniques will be covered, along with a number of risk models and some advanced strategies and techniques that will give participants a good knowledge of how they can manage risk.
Current approaches allow optimisation of return, taking market risk into account, but the volatile markets and global regulations make this a difficult operation. Priorities are always shifting for investors, with more sophisticated strategies meaning that firms must ensure they are using optimal portfolio management, risk and investment methods.
