Increasingly institutional investors have been using hedge funds in their portfolios, and as they move more into these alternative investments, their data collection and reporting will become more complicated as the requirements of alternative investments are more demanding. A high degree of investment analysis is needed before buying, and there is a limited amount of historical risk and return data available for this type of investment. Institutional investors will need more help understanding and mitigating the risks involved.

You are provided with information regarding pension fund and endowment risk management techniques, which will also be applicable to trustees of other institutions with large investment portfolios. This compelling report teaches you:

  • How to institute a new framework for risk management for pension funds and endowment funds.
  • What are the key factors to monitor (including data collection, risk reporting and governance).
  • How to identify and report on the most critical emerging issues and information to oversight boards.
  • To introduce checklists for practitioners to benchmark the practices of their organizations.
  • How to fit this framework into a holistic governance framework.
Risk Management for Institutional Investors will provide many checklists for practitioners to benchmark their organization’s practices. This is imperative for overseers (board members or trustees) as well as for those reporting to them. Readers will have a better understanding of how a risk management framework fits into a complete governance framework, and will also have a roadmap of the key risk analytics tools and how they can be harnessed to provide oversight boards with a better understanding of the effective control of risks.

Risk Management for Institutional Investors is an essential good practice guide for board-members and the people who report to them, addressing best practice compliance issues and giving comprehensive and straightforward strategic investment guidance.
