The Thinking Ahead Institutes assessment of the Smart Leadership. Sound Followership research

With the uncertain and often volatile outlook in capital markets playing on the minds of asset owners in recent years, there have been a plethora of investment strategy innovations undertaken by the investment community. These have sought to maximise and optimise outcomes through, for example, new approaches to risk diversification. However, there is a growing recognition by those at the forefront of industry thinking that an ability to adapt to a fast-changing landscape is critical, and that this is best achieved by sharing and implementing best-practice. We believe that the 15 funds in this research have achieved this by professionalising their practices in recent years such that they now command the stature of the world’s leading asset owners.
