The dedicated capital market team also works very closely with large number of market makers to ensure tight bid/offer spreads and competitive creation and redemption fees.

Research and publications
EDHEC-Risk research chair
Since 2009, the Amundi ETF, Indexing & Smart Beta team supports the “ETF and Passive Investment Strategies” research chair at EDHEC-Risk Institute. The chair conducts regular academic research on “core-satellite” investment approach, on the development of ETFs and their use by investors as part of their asset allocation strategies.
EDHEC-Risk Institute is recognised as a first-rate research institute in the fields of asset and risk management and its philosophy is to validate its work by publication in prestigious academic journals, but also to make it available to professionals and to participate in industry debate through its Position Papers, published studies and global conferences.
As part of its policy of transferring know-how to the industry, EDHEC-Risk Institute has set up ERI Scientific Beta. ERI Scientific Beta is an original initiative which aims to favour the adoption of the latest advances in smart beta design and implementation by the whole investment industry. Its academic origin provides the foundation for its strategy: offer, in the best economic conditions possible, the smart beta solutions that are most proven scientifically with full transparency of both the methods and the associated risks.
