Institutional Investors in Global Markets

Chapter 8 looks at roles and responsibilities in relation to asset owners and holders and the process of investment management. A framework presents the consultant’s value in the framing of investment strategies and their implementation, emphasizing issues of process as well as substance. The focus is on the role of consultants who advise clients on investment strategy and implementation. An analytical account is provided of the various roles of investment consultants—how and why their roles vary in relation to the size of assets under management (AUM) and the ways in which they can foster or obstruct innovation. The chapter begins with a discussion of the theory of intermediation. This followed by a schematic framework of what investment consultants do in three different types of pension fund—small, medium, and large, a framework that can be applied to endowments, foundations, family offices, and sovereign wealth funds.
