Professional market participants are increasingly puzzled by the exposed capital markets complexity when targeting capital preservation or more for their assets under management, given a lasting financial repression and persistently high correlations among traditional asset classes. Traditional asset allocation methodologies like Modern Portfolio Theory increasingly disappointed in achieving a significant diversification effect in portfolios. Where to go from here?

This seminar will cover the evolutionary asset allocation process from Generation 1 (Single-Factor/Single-Period models), via Generation 2 (Multi-Factor/Multi-Period models) to Generation 3 (Applied Behavioral Finance) and will highlight how practitioners can benefit hands-on in their investment decisions from the insights of the most recent generation 3.

Exemplarily, the following questions are addressed:

  • Why have the traditional asset allocation methodologies reached their limits?
  • What to use as starting point in state-of-the-art portfolio construction?
  • How to manage multi-asset portfolios to maximize the diversification effect?
  • How can investors practically benefit from behavioral finance insights?
  • How to define and manage risk in an interdependent world economy with interconnected capital markets?
  • Active versus Passive Investing? Or is it even a relevant question?
  • Factor-based investing - hype or opportunity?

 This seminar is tailored to the professional needs of practitioners from investment companies,

 In an intense two-day seminar, participants will be introduced to the latest asset allocation 
 insights of the third generation of optimization techniques, based on state-of-the-art applied
