            Our Research

            R&D of the EDHEC Infrastructure & Private Asset Research Institute

            Since 2016, the EDHEC Infrastructure & Private Assets Research Institute has been producing research on private asset pricing, risk management, credit risk and climate risk measurement. While some of this research has now been industrialised and is distributed by our corporate arm, Scientific Infra & Private Assets, we continue to develop new applied research in the field of investment and private markets, with a focus on machine learning and language processing.
