Advanced Asset Management
ACHIEVE SUPERIOR RESULTS WITH YOUR INVESTMENT STRATEGIES
Developed for asset managers from long-only institutions and market-neutral organisations alike, the Advanced Asset Management programme has been designed to provide a state-of-the-art “refresh”. It helps participants provide better performance for their clients by giving them an in-depth understanding of the major trends and issues in asset management today.
You are encouraged to broaden your thinking as you explore modern ideas, detailed techniques of asset management and portfolio selection. The aim is to break through the very narrow and specific set of skills used in day-to-day management to gain a better understanding of the new trends and issues in finance.
