The purpose of the program is to utilize the latest academic insights to help investment professionals better understand and implement advanced investment approaches and methodologies. “What that means for our clients is that we’re bringing the latest research and state-of-the-art investment practices to Halbert Hargrove’s Investment Committee – much of which have not yet entered into practice in the investment community.” says David Koch about the program.

“Some major topics covered were advanced methods for both asset allocation and risk management, and efficient harvesting of risk premia. Collectively, my class of about 30 students in the program manage hundreds of billions of dollars, from pension funds to insurance companies to sovereign wealth funds. We were all there to learn not only the latest research, but to learn from each other.”
