Become an AIFMD risk manager - Focus on real estate

Through your participation to the first module of our "Become an AIFMD risk manager" programme, you should now have a good understanding of the regulatory risk management framework and know how to build it when it comes to alternative investments.

In order to complement your learning journey, we have created 2 specific modules focusing on private equity and real estate. With these modules, you will now explore the connection between the valuation function and risk management function and how it is essential for a comprehensive understanding of financial management. In today's complex financial landscape, where uncertainty is a constant companion, understanding the profound relationship between these two functions is not just advantageous – it's imperative.

Throughout the training, we will navigate the landscape of valuation and risk management, examining their mutual influence and learning how to leverage their interconnectedness for optimal results. We will explore the nuances of how valuation assumptions impact risk assessments, and how the evaluation of risks, in turn, refines valuation models.

Our training is not a one-way lecture; it's an interactive and collaborative experience. You will engage in group discussions, share insights, and participate in practical exercises challenging you to apply the concepts you learn. Our aim is to arm equip you with the knowledge and tools to foster a harmonious partnership between valuation and risk management, enabling strategic decisions that are both informed and resilient.

This module focuses on real estate.

Your participation to the module 1 (Become an AIFMD risk manager - Regulatory and governance) is a prerequisite to access the modules specific to private equity and/or real estate.
