 Improving Pension Fund Investment Performance

Show Summary Details


Improving the investment performance of pension fund asset pools begins with a careful evaluation of the current performance of the plan, and then taking action to improve future performance. This chapter discusses how performance measurement techniques may be used to evaluate pension fund performance, and some important limitations of performance measurement. It reviews the evidence on money managers’ abilities to perform and looks at the issue of using historical performance to select managers.
