Investment Manager Analysis by Frank J. Travers

Book Description

Praise for "Investment Manager Analysis": 'This is a book that should have been written years ago. It provides a practical, thorough, and completely objective method to analyze and select an investment manager. It takes the mystery (and the consultants) out of the equation. Without question, this book belongs on every Plan Sponsor's desk' - Dave Davenport, Assistant Treasurer, Lord Corporation, author of "The Equity Manager Search". 'An insightful compendium of the issues that challenge those responsible for hiring and firing investment managers. Frank Travers does a good job of taking complicated analytical tools and methodologies and explaining them in a simple, yet practical manner. Anyone responsible for conducting investment manager due diligence should have a copy on their bookshelf' - Leon G. Cooperman, Chairman and CEO, Omega Advisors, Incorporated. '"Investment Manager Analysis" provides a good overview of the important areas that purchasers of institutional investment management services need to consider. It is a good instructional guide, from which search policies and procedures can be developed, as well as a handy reference guide' - David Spaulding, President, The Spaulding Group, Incorporated. 'This book is the definitive work on the investment manager selection process. It is comprehensive in scope and well organized for both the layman and the professional. It should be required reading for any organization or individual seeking talent to manage their assets' - Scott Johnston, Chairman and Chief Investment Officer, Sterling Johnston Capital Management, LP. '"Investment Manager Analysis" is a much-needed, comprehensive review of the manager selection process. While the industry is riddled with information about selecting individual stocks, comparatively little has been written on the important subject of manager selection for fund sponsors. This is a particularly useful guide for the less experienced practitioner and offers considerable value to the veteran decisionmaker as well' - Dennis J. Trittin, CFA, Portfolio Manager, Russell Investment Group.
