Session type:

The last few years have seen a re-evaluation of the methods and products used to build investment portfolios.  This session uncovers the latest academic and practitioner evidence on the pros and cons of alternative portfolio construction techniques, such as factor-based investing and risk-parity.  The latest evidence on the return to alternatives, including hedge funds, private equity, and commodities, will also be explored.  Finally, the active versus passive investing debate will be examined through the ability to implement these strategies using active share and other techniques.
