(15 min podcast) In this episode of The Source, eVestment’s podcast covering trends and insights in institutional investing, we sat down with Ron Klotter and Brad Alford to talk about the new OCIO indices created through a partnership with eVestment’s parent company, Nasdaq, and a business founded by Brad, Alpha Capital Management. The Alpha-Nasdaq OCIO indices are aimed at creating transparency for the OCIO industry and are designed to give investors and OCIO firms the ability to objectively measure performance against peers.
Brad and Ron shared their insights for asset managers — specifically emerging managers — who are looking to target OCIO firms and how they can best differentiate themselves, even in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Ron and Brad’s extensive experience working for and with OCIO firms gives them a unique perspective to share where they see such opportunities for managers.
