Main Research - Investment & Portfolio Management (Prof. Dr. Raimond Maurer)

Agents of interest in this area are institutional investors, such as investment funds, insurance companies and pension funds. These institutions construct their portfolios using primary financial instruments (stocks, interest bearing assets, real-estate) and derivative products (options, futures, swaps). Obviously, not only risk and return are important in this context, regulatory issues must also be considered. We try to especially accentuate the area of real-estate research.
