The right manager meets the criteria you care about, not a generic standard.
How to select the best managers for you:
Go behind headline numbers
Most top-quartile managers are delivering similar performance. What differentiates one portfolio team from another is how they’re delivering, their thought process and their ability to remain disciplined. Multi-dimensional analysis — quantitative and qualitative — is key to finding managers aligned with your objectives.
Know the questions to ask
Whether you’re conducting your own manager search or you’re working with a consultant, start with the questions that reflect your organization’s values and priorities.
Don't overlook emerging talent
Every quarter, 500+ institutional products are added to the eVestment database alone. Many of these come from smaller, emerging managers that have the ability to pursue opportunities with less constraint than larger, established products.
