Risk-based Investment Governance and Member Networking Drinks

Event Description

 CFA Society VBA Netherlands invites you to:
Risk-based Investment Governance
followed by 
Bi-Monthly member networking drinks 

​Risk-based investment governance is a structural new frontier in investment management. One just needs to open the newspapers on governance lapses and their associated cost!

Given the unprecedented dynamics in the investment space, investment professionals need to pay more and closer attention to how governance is being designed and implemented. While the concepts of governance and overseeing investments are not complex, the idiosyncratic nature of especially alternative investments in volatile capital markets; changing operating models; technological developments and others, leads to emerging risks which are difficult to grab with traditional risk management notions, especially those with an ethical component. This is valid for investment constructs such as asset management firms, family offices, investment and private label funds, fund manco’s, pension funds, charities etc. All in all, the impact on portfolios and these investment organizations can be huge, and losses from investment governance lapses can be painful.

This topic needs to be known and fully understood in the board room, which is not always the case. In this presentation, Eelco will go into this interconnectedness, resulting governance challenges and will present a coherent framework for better risk-adjusted investment outcomes.
