The global economy is facing new challenges, among which the growing complexity and rapidly changing financial markets are of utmost importance. In this context, École Polytechnique has teamed up with the Edmond de Rothschild Risk Foundation and Group to create an asset management chair, led by Guillaume Hollard, a researcher at CREST and professor in economics at Polytechnique. This chair was launched on Monday, June 12, 2017. Among the activities of research and teaching supported by the Chair, note in particular the creation of a dedicated investment fund that will allow students to test in real life strategies of investment and to measure the risks. More broadly, the chair aims to remain attentive to changes in practices in the financial industry to better prepare future professionals.
