Engineering Sustainability & Sustainable Energy 2018

The Chamber of Engineers is organising a joint conference in collaboration with the Institute for Sustainable Energy of the University of Malta, entitled:

Engineering Sustainability & Sustainable Energy 2018

ESSE ‘18

Tuesday 8th May 2018

The Dolmen Resort Hotel & Spa, St. Paul’s Bay, Malta

As technological advancements are being made in all societal levels and the quality of life has increased, unprecedented pressures on the planet have resulted in weather anomalies, resource depletion, wildlife habitat loss and an increased potential for human conflict. Engineers and Scientists have now found themselves in a unique position of responsibility, where they need to seek inspiration to further technological progress by doing more with less, to achieve higher efficiencies and enhance productivity, and to sustain the engineering trade, while engineering a sustainable future.

This conference aims at bringing together all professional stakeholders to discuss future plans and demonstrate their latest success stories in engineering a sustainable future. Many aspects will be considered from micro to macro levels. Resources, including but not limited to energy and renewable energy, industry, buildings and policy shall be considered and linked to sustainability and the energy challenges that human beings will face beyond 2020.

Registration to the conference is now open.

Managing Risk When Investing

A decade on from the financial crisis, what have we learnt?  As cheap money floods global economy, is there a similarity to what happened ten years ago?

Prior to the crisis, high risk investments tended to be associated with equities, while low risk investments were linked to Government bonds, Cash accounts and bonds. The market volatility that ensued after the 2008 market crash indicated that the risk conventionally associated with these investment has changed.

A basic definition of the term ‘risk’ shows that it involves the probability that the actual return will differ from the expected return. Risk is focused primarily on the downside which may lead investors to lose capital. Therefore, a good understanding of what risk is and the basic strategies for managing risk, is becoming increasingly more important in today’s markets.

Against this backdrop, Fund Managers have, in recent years, developed a new concept whereby funds are being set up with their composition dictated by the risk appetite of the investor and not by the prescribed investments in that fund.  Rather than investing in single securities, the individual investor may choose the portfolio which best fits his or her risk appetite. These kind of funds have a distinct level of expected return linked to the volatility of the markets which cater for individuals with a different tolerance to risk.
