Day 1 - Wednesday

Workshop 1: Equity-style Attributions in PEARL

In this workshop, we will deep-dive into the different equity-style attribution models provided by the latest PEARL version. PEARL, the globally acclaimed investment performance solution from Ortec Finance, offers an array of models and configuration options which, at a first glance, can seem overwhelming. During this workshop, the speakers will explain all the following capabilities and use of these models:
  • Top-down vs. bottom-up
  • Single- and multi-level attributions
  • Using look-through
  • Calculating additional effects such as Hedging, Currency, Trading and Pricing effects


Workshop 2: Currency Management

During the workshop we’ll focus on analyzing different currency management strategies on an ex-post basis using Ortec Finance’s performance evaluation solution PEARL to demonstrate the different techniques.* 

  • Gain insight into your currency exposures
  • Applying and analyzing different hedging strategies
  • Measuring the impact of proxy currencies and timing decisions 
  • How best to evaluate your currency manager?

This session will be a great opportunity to discuss the pros-and-cons of the different methods of evaluating your currency management on an ex-post basis together with both Ortec Finance’s experts and your peers. 

*  Please note that this is not a hands-on software training.


Workshop 3: Climate Risk Workshop

Climate risk is recognized as a systemic driver of financial risk. This introduces new challenges for investors. What is the impact of various global warming pathways on the forward-looking financial risks and returns? And, what does this mean for your long-term objectives and risk appetite? During this interactive workshop, we will have an in-depth discussion on Ortec Finance latest innovation for embedding climate related risks and opportunities into financial planning and risk analysis.*

Indicative topics to be covered:

1. Introducing the climate change challenge including upcoming financial regulation

2. Presenting the climate-savvy scenario methodology
  • Building block I: climate data inputs
  • Building block II: translation to macro-economic shocks
  • Building block III: translation to financial markets via adjusted Ortec Finance scenario methodology

3. Illustrative case study: applying climate-savvy scenario’s to an investment portfolio

* Please note that this is not a hands-on software training.
