Event Details

Join Fuqua’s Professor of Finance, Simon Gervais, for a mock Executive MBA class. This session will simulate an abridged executive MBA class, followed by a short Q&A with Professor Gervais.  The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) is perhaps the most influential model in finance.  It provides the intellectual foundation for two ideas that have had (and are still having) a tremendous impact on investing and asset management.  One, it emphasizes that diversification is an integral part of a sound investment policy.  Two, it argues that index investing can provide the best achievable risk-return tradeoff for investors.  In this context, we will look at the evolution of the asset management industry over the last 40-50 years, at the performance of various forms of asset management, and at the extent to which market efficiency may be affecting our conclusions.



(Wednesday) 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm ET
