About The Online Conference
This mini-conference explores old and new methods for the attribution of performance and risk, combining traditional methods with some innovative thinking and worked examples. The presenters explore how investment managers might game the performance analysts’ methods to enhance their returns. The presenters will also provide an interactive and robust debate on the controversial question of the relative merits of active versus passive management. Statistics provided by Standard &Poors will be examined in depth during this debate.
Topics Covered:
  • Are superannuation fund risks overstated or are they not taken seriously enough?
  • Liquidity and Concentration Risks
  • How superannuation funds might prepare for the unknowns
  • Is the risk of unit pricing errors in a Black Swan event being given sufficient attention?
  • Panel session – Risks from “left field” – the unforeseen and unprotected risks
  • Fraud Risk: Why superannuation funds can be soft targets for fraud
  • Operational Risks with Outsourced Investment Management
  • Reflections on the risk governance framework
    emerging from the ASIC investigation of Westpac.
  • How superannuation funds can learn from the Westpac risk governance framework
  • Would more superannuation fund mergers lead to reduced long-term risk or would it
    increase short term risks?
  • Less obvious risks emerging with investments in unlisted assets
