Risk series - breakfast event: Where do practitioners go wrong in estimating risk? (Fully Booked)
Fri 06 Sep 19 at Brand Exchange, London

Robert Macrae, CFA, will discuss three areas in which practitioners often go wrong in estimating risk: the tails; optimised portfolios; and trade portfolios. 

You will be encouraged to get involved and help him tackle:

  • Can we objectively estimate risk in the tails, where data is scarce, or is a subjective element unavoidable? 
  • How should risk estimation change when we have to deal with optimised portfolios?
  • Can long-only managers always rely on the long-only constraint to regularise portfolio construction?

Tea, coffee and pastries will be available during the registration period.
