EDHEC Speaker Series: Net-Zero Investing

In early 2022, EDHEC Business School launched the monthly online speaker series, 'The Future of Finance,' designed to explore the latest developments in the financial industry and discuss how finance can address critical economic and societal challenges.

The EDHEC Speaker Series “The Future of Finance”, has garnered an inclusive audience of students, researchers, and finance professionals.


On March 12, 2024, EDHEC Business School will host Thierry Roncalli, Head of Quant Portfolio Strategy at Amundi Institute who will deliver a talk on Net-Zero Investing.

Thierry Roncalli brings extensive expertise in quantitative finance and investment strategy, making him a leading authority in the field of sustainable finance. With a focus on climate-conscious investment practices, Thierry has been instrumental in developing innovative approaches to integrate environmental factors into portfolio management strategies.

During this webinar, Thierry Roncalli will discuss the implementation of net-zero policies at the portfolio level and within a strategic asset allocation framework. In particular, he will discuss the main methodologies: the integrated approach and the core-satellite approach.

He will show that net-zero investing is not only a carbon footprint issue, but also a green footprint issue.



The session will be moderated by Frédéric Ducoulombier, Director of the EDHEC-Risk Climate Impact Institute and Emmanuel Jurczenko, Director of Graduate Finance Programmes at EDHEC Business School
