The Institut Louis Bachelier, in cooperation with the Fondation du Risque, the Europlace Institute of Finance and the Louis Bachelier “Finance and Sustainable Growth” Laboratory, organized,  the 9th Financial Risks International Forum. In the current context, this year’s forum was focus on “NEW CHALLENGES FACING THE INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT INDUSTRY”.
The aim of this conference was to highlight the methodological and regulatory challenges confronting the investment management industry. The financial crisis and its aftermath have resulted in reflection on the tools and practices of investment managers. The economic and financial environment is challenging, marked by low interest rates, increased volatility, and new economic and demographic risks. Standard practices such as the use of traditional risk management models, benchmarks, quantitative backtests, are being called into question. End investors require more governance and socially responsible investment practices. Regulatory complexity is a constantly evolving concern for the industry. Questions have been raised about potential incentive problems created by delegated management, and financial stability risks posed by the asset management industry.
