Risk Planning for the Next Market Crisis

Market shocks can be fast, confusing and brutal. Attempting to react to them in real-time often results in suboptimal investment decisions. That’s where risk scenario planning is essential. In this analysis, we use the Solovis Risk Analytics application to simulate the impact of a market shock on a hypothetical public-plan portfolio and model the impact that an uptick in corporate bankruptcies might have on our portfolio.

Transforming Data Into Actionable Intelligence for Asset Owners

Aired July 2020

Real success comes when investors know what to do with their data: How to slice it, interpret and synthesize it, then draw insights that inform decision-making. Many investment teams don’t have the internal resources or expertise to transform manager and trend data into actionable intelligence. In this webcast, Matt Brunwin, Head of Professional Services at eVestment, will cover practical use cases, as well as how this service partners with you to drive results in your research, monitoring and selection process.

How Investors Are Holding Managers Accountable Through COVID-19


In times of volatility, it is more important than ever to understand how your managers are performing, the factors driving this performance and whether there are any areas for concern – with respect to the funds you have invested in, but also with respect to their firms and people. In this partner webcast with IPE, hear how institutional investors have responded to these extraordinary socio-economic conditions and how to apply their best practices to your existing manager monitoring process when returns are unpredictable.
