HIRE OR FIRE? “THE PROBLEM OF CHOICE”
• The rationale behind fund manager selection and termination.
• The influence of past performance on manager selection.
• Implementing processes that aim to tackle the influence of biases on investors decision making.
• A real life example from our portfolio management team constructing a fixed income portfolio - from manager selection to ongoing portfolio management and importantly, when to fire a manager.
Global investment markets remain uncertain and volatile so identifying and blending the strongest investment managers is critical for a successful investment outcome.
