Static, dynamic, adaptive, what is the future of Asset Allocation?

The financial world is constantly changing, the instruments are changing and the investment styles are changing, but there is one thing that doesn’t seem to change: the Efficient Market Hypothesis.
A theory that has been able to explain the financial markets in its entirety has not yet been found, but does not mean that we should give up looking for the investment style that guarantees us the best chance of success.
Everyone agrees that asset allocation is the most important piece in the process, but opinions differ as to which is the best way to do it.
Is it better to take a static approach in the old fashioned way or is it better to seek a dynamic approach following trends? Or, even more, is it better to follow an adaptive approach following the new Adaptive Market Theory of Andrew Lo (MIT)?
This is going to be the focus of Giorgio Carlino's speech.
Giorgio will show us the pros and cons of each approach to give us the possibility to understand which one fits better to our situation as investors.
Specifically, we will finally be able to find some answers to the important questions many investors ask themselves, I will be, though, explained in a simple language, within everyone's reach, so that it can be understood by an audience of non-professional investors.

To find out the answers you just have to visit us on Wednesday, May 18 at 11 am in the Green room.

Investors and sustainability: challenges and perspectives for ESG investments

Last year Euronext announced the debut of the MIB ESG index, the first index dedicated to the Italian stock market designed to identify the large Italian issuers with ESG best practices. An initiative that also has the aim of encouraging companies to pursue ambitious goals from the point of view of sustainability. Following this initiative, some leading investment houses have requested admission to trading on the Borsa Italiana markets of certificates and ETNs having the MIB ESG index underlying, immediately following up on market demand. The regulatory framework is also rapidly evolving in favor of private investors, converging towards a specific regulatory provision that will guarantee a profiling of retail customers also from an ESG point of view. The seminar will focus on these changes, offering interesting insights thanks to the privileged observatory of investment houses involved in the launch of structured products on ESG indices on a pan-European level and of a leading international law firm.

The Lapidari's Keys

On many asset classes, 2022 sees us busy deciphering news and unknowns for the future, together with the growth of volatility, not always accompanied by clear and stable directions. Consequently, the majority of investors face operational difficulties in managing price movements. However, it is possible to draw some equilibrium lines, which we will define as Keys, to clean up the graph from the noise of sudden oscillations. This will allow us to understand with extraordinary immediacy how the trend is moving and where to place our inputs, outputs, supports and resistances. In this meeting Giovanni Lapidari will demonstrate that graphic analysis 2.0 can be built on our monitors.
