The students in the AIM program (Class of 2012) were the beneficiaries of a presentation by Craig Vanucci, Managing Director, Sales and Client Service, Ziegler Lotsoff. Mr. Vanucci's presentation on February 13th focused on portfolio optimization and risk management. The topics of Value at Risk (VaR) and liability management were presented. This topic will be further explored by the AIM students in March.
Dr. David Krause, AIM program director, said that Mr. Vanucci's talk "was well received by the students. The topics he discussed were well-timed with the material we are about to cover. The concepts of Value at Risk and asset allocation are important issues that we will be discussing soon. Craig did an excellent job explaining these challenges issues - I appreciate his visit to the AIM program. He did a very effective job."
