How to Select Investment Managers

Trustees and board members charged with managing pensions, endowments and investments will enjoy much greater success if they are armed with the skills and knowledge required in selecting the right investment managers. Menlo College President Dr. G. Timothy Haight has teamed up with Stephen Morrell and Glenn E. Ross to produce How to Select Investment Managers and Evaluate Performance: A Guide for Pension Funds, Endowments, Foundations, and Trusts. The book addresses issues commonly faced by investment boards and demystifies the process of evaluating the effectiveness of investment managers.

The book is enriched by Dr. Haight's decades of experience serving on investment boards from Maryland to California.

How to Select Investment Managers and Evaluate Performance is a crucial guide to large-scale investment in a post-Sarbanes-Oxley-Act world, where oversight can lead to hefty legal troubles.

“Today more than ever, investing is more than just picking stocks,” said Dr. Haight. “Portfolios must be designed to meet one's investment objectives while minimizing risks. Given the volatility in the global markets, this has never been truer!”
