FIRESIDE CHAT: INTERVIEW WITH MINNESOTA STATE BOARD OF INVESTMENT
Join us to hear insights from longtime Executive Director and Chief Investment Officer for the Minnesota State Board of Investment, Mansco Perry.
In 2017 and early 2018, the story was synchronized global growth, but the past 6 months have been marked by divergence in growth and expectations. Currently we find ourselves in an uneven economic growth environment, with decreasing central bank intervention, uncertain trade outlook, interest rate headwinds and volatile commodity prices. This panel will address these and other factors that could affect investors’ decisions moving forward.
DON'T JUDGE A PRIVATE EQUITY FUND BY ITS NUMBER
As institutional LPs become more and more experienced and sophisticated, they now have more choices and access to private markets exposure. Join us for a conversation on the latest allocation trends in private equity for institutional funds, and the opportunities and risks posed by both emerging managers and established industry players.
FIXED INCOME RISKS
Evaluating the real risks in a fixed income portfolio has always been challenging endeavor. Is it interest rate risk, credit risk or liquidity risk that is moving the value of portfolio up or down? Is it worth paying for active management or will simply trying to invest in a fixed income benchmark at a rock bottom fee accomplish the same portfolio objective? As central banking policy evolves from quantitative easing to quantitative tightening, seeking the right solutions may lead to significant performance dispersion depending on the true risk that either an active manager or a benchmark is taking.
