Performance Magazine, Issue 14

Adapting to ever changing conditions


It has been more than six decades now since Nobel Prize winning economist Harry Markowitz first laid the foundation for modern portfolio theory, and since that time, the global investment management industry has continued to extend the boundaries of diversification into new realms. Pensions, endowments and other institutional investors were major instigators of this important evolution, as fund managers sought new asset classes to meet these plans' unique obligations. In many ways, the allocation strategies these managers designed served as precursors for today's truly modern portfolios, maintained by institutions and individual investors alike.

This 14th edition of Performance Magazine catalogues how institutional investors are once again pushing those borders. Our coverage takes us across the globe and contains contributions from some of the word's largest investment managers. This edition will explore topics, including:

  • A steady hand at the helm: Perspectives from The Vanguard Group
  • Data and analytics: A new battleground in the investment industry
  • Cybersecurity and how fund managers can assess threats
  • A changing landscape: Global tax and investor reporting
  • A focus on Japan: Effective allocation of local capital could be a significant catalyst
  • Navigating the new operational frontier
