Overview


This conference will review recent advances in active and passive delegated portfolio management. The
main objective of the conference is to confront decades of advances in academic and empirical finance to
the state of practice of delegated portfolio mana
gement. The subject of delegated management has been
around for more than 30 years and hundreds of research evidence has been published on this subject.
Despite all these academic evidence about delegated portfolio management, the industry only slowly ada
pts
its practice to these facts.


Because of the increasing complexity of financial markets, the difficulty to out
-
perform benchmarks and the
high cost to manage money in
-
house, many pension funds and individual investors have opted to manage
their
financial assets through a delegated portfolio manager for active investing or used passive investing.
Then, in most industrialized countries, a substantial part of financial wealth is not managed directly by
savers, but through a financial intermediary.
The mandate of this financial intermediary could be passive
such as replicating a benchmark or active with an expectation of outperforming a benchmark. The mandates
cover traditional asset management and alternative asset management as well.


The conferenc
e offers participants an opportunity to stay current with the best practices and innovative
thinking necessary for successfully use delegated portfolio management.
