The principal objective of the book is to identify, and to suggest approaches to manage, the key challenges facing asset managers in the "New Normal" economic and financial market environment. In addition is seeks to critically assess the tools at asset managers' disposal for the forecasting of returns, the analysis of risk and the construction of portfolios and proposes that, in a rapidly changing globalised world, qualitative analysis should play a leading role, complemented by pragmatic quantitative analysis where appropriate.

The book addresses asset management from a number of different and overlapping perspectives, carefully considering Governmental influence, industry sector evolution, regional factors and investment structural considerations, including the increasing role of Islamic financing structures. It also considers the risk management of macro factors such as geo-political risk exposures as well as those at the market and security level in order that comprehensive analysis of risk and return can be incorporated into the construction of robust investment portfolios.

Key Questions addressed by the book:

  • How much "stress liquidity" should asset managers maintain in their portfolios?
  • Why has the asset management industry failed to deliver acceptable returns in recent years?
  • What will be the impact of environmental factors and policy initiatives going forward?
  • Do traditional analytical approaches really help us to understand "the Internet of things"?
  • How will the global polarisation of wealth affect investment markets?
  • How should portfolios be positioned to reflect lower secular growth in China, the US and Europe?
  • What are the risks emanating from the profound dearth of invested equity capital globally?
  • How can the risks inherent in emerging markets such as Africa be effectively managed?
