Learning in the seminar involves a mix of interactive lectures and case study discussions. There will be ample opportunity for participants to engage with the instructor with questions about factor investing.
Investment portfolios are based on the idea that risk must be taken in order to increase expected returns. However, there are intelligent ways to take risk. Participants will learn about how to use current models and empirical evidence about global capital markets to construct asset portfolios based on the principles of factor investing, with a particular focus on equity and bond markets.
