Far too many pension trustees – even in large funds – have an inadequate understanding of investment and financial markets. This book – tailored specifically for pension fund trustees – fills an important gap in their knowledge. Designed as a practical, easy-to-follow guide to the new financial environment in which pension trustees are learning to operate, it provides them with a set of working definitions, and the financial techniques and tools they need in order to improve their returns and safeguard their risks. It summarizes the latest thinking and techniques in traditional assets, such as equities, bonds, property and cash, and examines the potential for investing in less conventional asset classes, such as hedge funds, private equity and commodities, where both rewards and risks can be high.
