For those of you who find the New Year’s celebrations too noisy and might be looking for an alternative use of your time, there’s lots of, er, fun to be had looking through the data in the latest IMF release of the Coordinated Portfolio Investment Survey (CPIS).Â This is a survey that the Fund does to assemble data on cross-border holdings of equity and debt securities.Â Unfortunately, some of the really juicy stuff is missing — don’t look here for data on overseas holdings of sovereign wealth funds or China, or assets held as official reserves.Â And the new release only covers up to end-2008:Â financial marketsÂ had alreadyÂ fallen a lot,Â but much of the economic impact of the crisis was still to come.Â Â But for the countries that do provide meaningful data, one learns quite a bit.
This programme involves two aspects of research into indices and benchmarks in traditional and alternative investment. The first aspect looks at the quality of indices, the criteria institutions use to select them, and revisits modern portfolio theory to develop innovative approaches to constructing new forms of indices in the traditional and alternative universes. As such, EDHEC-Risk has proposed a proprietary method of style index construction for the alternative universe and launched the first composite hedge fund strategy indices in 2003.

The Baltic Dry Index is a daily average of prices to ship raw materials. It represents the cost paid by an end customer to have a shipping company transport raw materials across seas on the Baltic Exchange , the global marketplace for brokering shipping contracts.
