Milan, 24 January 2012 - Centro Svizzero - 6:15 pm

The current financial crisis has made clear that a wise investment strategy must keep into consideration two key elements: not only a deep knowledge of the financial markets and the macroeconomic environment, but also a full appraisal of the moods and attitudes of the various investors and markets’ practitioners in different markets’ phases.
Alessandro Fugnoli, Strategist at Kairos Investment Management, and Joachim Klement, CFA, Partner and Chief Investment Officer at Wellershoff & Partners Ltd., will help us in understanding how the traditional financial analysis and the behavioral finance interact.

  Italian CFA Society has launched the first university Fund Management Challenge in collaboration with Factset and Morgan Stanley. Student teams from Italian universities will have the opportunity to create and manage a virtual equity portfolio as if they were hedge fund or portfolio managers. The competition is expected to start in January 2012 and end in June. The portfolios will be concentrated and the competition will be performance based. Transaction costs, turnover constraints and short investment case summaries for each investment made will all add to the real-life experience of the Challenge. Thanks to its remote access platform provided by Factset, this new competition is a unique opportunity for students across the country to learn the importance of market ethics as well as the joys and perils of portfolio management through hands-on experience. Winning teams will be invited to an award ceremony in Milan. For more information contact
