Other Institutions - Articles & White Papers

White papers and articles covering a range of topics relating to institutions other than pension funds. This covers asset owners such as endowments and foundations, insurance companies, SWFs and central banks, and also traditional asset managers, wealth managers and investment consultants. Many of our most popular reports cover the investment management industry itself, for instance: examining business strategy for alternative asset managers, exploring the "megatrends" shaping the investment management industry, or analyzing the drivers of change in the global wealth and asset management industry. However, our most popular reports are those which show the results of salary surveys - surveys of fund manager compensation, for front office and asset management roles, in both the UK and US. For more specific research listings - for instance papers for endowments, reports on SWFs, or research for insurance asset managers - please click on the appropriate section in the topic menu at the top of the page.
