About EDHEC-Risk Institute

Since 2001, EDHEC Business School 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 over 95 permanent professors, engineers and support
staff, as well as 48 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; Nice and Paris in France; and New
York 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. Each year, EDHEC-Risk
organises three conferences for professionals 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)
attracting more than 2,500 professional delegates.

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 65,000 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 1.5 million 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. These professionals are looking to go beyond their usual
activities in order to develop research on the concepts that are relevant to
their occupation. Complementing the core faculty, this unique PhD in Finance
programme has highly prestigious affiliate faculty from universities such as
Princeton, Wharton, Oxford, Chicago and CalTech.

In 2012, EDHEC-Risk Institute signed two strategic partnership agreements with
the Operations Research and Financial Engineering department of Princeton
University to set up a joint research programme in the area of risk and
investment management, and with Yale School of Management to set up joint
certified executive training courses in North America and Europe in the area
of investment management.

Building on its experience in the area of beta analysis and creation,
EDHEC-Risk Institute has also created ERI Scientific Beta, which aims to be
the leading provider of advanced beta for the investment industry. This
initiative is based on all of the research conducted by EDHEC in the area of
indices and benchmarks.
