Defining, Measuring, and Managing Uncertainty: The CFA Institute Risk Symposium
Investing: A Bet on an Uncertain Future Since Harry Markowitz introduced modern portfolio theory in 1952, risk has commonly referred to the standard deviation of returns over a period of time, and in this context, it has become the critical component of portfolio construction. But the risks borne by investors go far beyond mere volatility and vary in relevance depending upon investment strategy. Dealing with risk is part of every investor’s job, whether it is the question of portfolio optimization, the probability that a borrower will repay a debt, the likelihood that a pension scheme will meet its future liabilities, or the complexities of managing an investment firm. These and other dimensions of risk are as critical as ever to the business of successful investing. Join a special gathering of leading scholars and practitioners as they elevate the discussion of risk to the highest levels of our profession at a special CFA Institute event.
