BRANDING NEWS: EDHEC Risk and Asset Management Research Centre changes its name
Asset and risk management research organisation EDHEC Risk and Asset Management Research Centre has changed its name to the EDHEC-Risk Institute.
EDHEC Risk and Asset Management Research Centre was set up in 2001 to conduct world-class academic research and highlight its applications to the industry.
Professor NoÃ«l Amenc, director of EDHEC-Risk Institute, said "Over the past nine years, the brand name âEDHEC-Risk' has become synonymous with state-of-the-art financial research applied to asset management. We felt that this widely-recognised brand name should be shared across the whole range of our activities that benefit from the involvement of the EDHEC-Risk research team, whether educational activities (the EDHEC-Risk Institute PhD in Finance, the EDHEC-Risk Institute Executive MSc in Risk and Investment Management and the joint CFA Institute/EDHEC-Risk Institute Advances in Asset Allocation Seminars); research publications and debates with the industry (EDHEC-Risk Institute Position Papers and Publications); conferences (the EDHEC-Risk Alternative Investment Days and the EDHEC-Risk Institutional Days); or products and services (EDHEC-Risk Indexes)."
