The Investment Management Due Diligence Association (IMDDA,) the only independent global organization focused on investment management and operational due diligence, today announced that it has released a new series of educational courses designed for the investor and what they need to know about the Equity, Fixed Income, and Derivative markets. In today’s global financial markets the eternal search for alpha has increased pressure on investors to add new asset classes to their portfolios. Accepting what a manager says at face value is no longer the norm and it is crucial that investors understand the underlying portfolio.
“Understanding the assets or instruments that make up a hedge fund portfolio is fundamental for today’s investors and institutional investors,” said IMDDA Executive Director Andrew Borowiec. “We see a dynamically changing environment in Equity trading, Fixed Income and Derivatives marketplace and a lack of resources available to investors to stay ahead of the curve and having the information they need to make informed decisions. These courses fill that gap and place emphasis on the content most important for them.”
The IMDDA will be offer this series in both New York City and London beginning in February of 2017. The courses are intended for industry professionals who support the traditional front office functions, entrants into the industry from Asset Management, Pension and Insurance Firms, Sovereign Funds, Investment and Development Banks and advisors working with Asset Managers, including accountants, lawyers, consultants, and investment advisors. These one-day courses are limited in class size to ensure a high level of dialogue and interaction for participants to enrich the overall learning experience and curriculum.
