Actifs Illiquides : une oasis dans le désert du rendement ?
You can watch the conference on the YouTube page of Université Paris-Dauphine here.
Thank you for your presence at the Master 203 Annual Conference on Illiquid Assets. The organisation committee and Stratefi 203, the students and alumni association of the Master 203, is proud for having you so numerous at the event and cockail.
Here is a summary of the main themes of the event (to be held in French):
“La conférence 2016 du master 203 avait traité du risque de liquidité dans les classes d’actifs traditionnelles.
Cette année, le comité organisateur voudrait recueillir l’avis d’expert sur les actifs qui sont, de nature, illiquides. Ces actifs sont des projets d’infrastructure, des plateformes pétrolières, etc. Cette classe d’actif autrefois réservée aux investisseurs hautement spécialisés attire aujourd’hui des investisseurs traditionnels comme des fonds de pensions ou des assureurs. Ces investisseurs faisant face à des rendements historiquement bas sur les marchés obligataires se tournent vers les actifs illiquides à la quête de rendements plus élevés.”
