EDHEC‐Risk Institute and NATIXIS set up a research chair on the investment characteristics and governance of infrastructure debt instruments
EDHEC‐Risk Institute and Natixis are proud to announce the creation of a research chair entitled “Investment and Governance Characteristics of Infrastructure Debt Instruments”.
Since 2001, EDHEC has been pursuing an ambitious policy in terms of international research. This policy, known as “Research for Business”, aims to make EDHEC an academic institution of reference for the industry in a small number of areas in which the school has reached critical mass in terms of expertise and research results. Among these areas, asset and risk management have occupied privileged positions, leading to the creation in 2001 of a major research facility: EDHEC‐Risk Institute. This institute now boasts a team of 85 permanent professors, engineers and support staff, as well as 45 research associates from the financial industry and affiliate professors. EDHEC‐Risk Institute is located at campuses in Singapore, which was established at the invitation of the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), the City of London in the United Kingdom, and Nice, France. In addition, it has a research team located in the United States. The philosophy of the institute is to validate its work by publication in prestigious academic journals, but also to make it available to professionals and to participate in industry debate through its Position Papers, published studies and conferences. From 2013, EDHEC‐Risk will be organising major conferences for professionals on three continents in order to present the results of its research, one in London (EDHEC‐Risk Days Europe), one in Singapore (EDHEC‐Risk Days Asia), and one in New York (EDHEC‐Risk Days North America).
To ensure the distribution of its research to the industry, EDHEC‐Risk also provides professionals with access to its website, www.edhec‐risk.com, which is entirely devoted to international risk and asset management research. The website, which has more than 55,000 regular visitors, is aimed at professionals who wish to benefit from EDHEC‐Risk’s analysis and expertise in the area of applied portfolio management research. Its monthly newsletter is distributed to more than 1,400,000 readers. EDHEC‐Risk Institute also has highly significant executive education activities for professionals. In partnership with CFA Institute, it has developed advanced seminars based on its research which are available to CFA charterholders and have been taking place since 2008 in New York, Singapore and London. EDHEC‐Risk Institute has an original PhD in Finance programme which, in addition to its highly selective residential track for young talents worldwide, has an executive track for high level professionals who already have master’s degrees from prestigious universities and significant industry experience. This unique PhD in Finance programme has highly prestigious affiliate faculty from universities such as Princeton, Wharton, Oxford, Chicago and CalTech.
