“Moving Beyond Modern Portfolio Theory: Investing That Matters” - 5/26/21
From Louisa Cresson
The Weinberg Center hosted a webinar featuring Jon Lukomnik and James Hawley focusing on their newly published book, “Moving Beyond Modern Portfolio Theory: Investing That Matters”. The book tells the story of how Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT) revolutionized the investing world and the real economy, but is now showing its age. MPT has no mechanism to understand its impacts on the environmental, social and financial systems, nor any tools for investors to mitigate the havoc that systemic risks can wreck on their portfolios. The authors believe that it’s time for MPT to evolve.
