Fiduciary Management
124,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Fiduciary Management 'Dr. van Nunen goes much further than to discuss governance. He discusses all aspects of what should be done in making a defined benefit plan successful, and expresses his views forthrightly. And he not only traces the history of pension arrangements, but supplements it with a fascinating chapter comparing arrangements around what I think of as the funded world. His ideas are relevant to fiduciaries around the funded world ... I hope you find his book as interesting, engaging, and useful as I did.' --From the Foreword by Don Ezra, Director of Investment Strategy, Russell Investment Group, and coauthor of Pension Fund Excellence 'Many pension funds are too small to ever become cost-effective pension delivery organizations. This book offers a solution to the serious 'too small' problem.' --Keith Ambachtsheer, Director of the Rotman International Centre for Pension Management, University of Toronto, founder of KPA Advisory Services Ltd., and author of Pension Revolution 'The topic of fiduciary management is now at the leading edge of assets and pensions management, which makes this book extremely timely. It manages to distill a wealth of practice and experience into a short and lucid discussion of the topic. A particular pleasure is that it avoids the trap of pages of obscure and usually irrelevant mathematics. For the many not following into this field, this is a 'must read.'' --Con Keating, principal of The Finance Development Centre Ltd., London 'As is readily apparent from this book, Dr. van Nunen has thought long and hard about fiduciarymanagement and is one of the world's leading experts. He comprehensively describes how fiduciary management can improve plan governance, particularly as it relates to manager selection and the management of surplus risk. The book does an excellent job explaining how fiduciary management provides a robust framework and clear separation of duties for investment committee members trying to navigate an increasingly complex investment landscape.' --Bob Litterman, Managing Director and Head of Goldman Sachs Asset Management's Quantitative Resources Group, and author of Modern Investment Management: An Equilibrium Approach 'I found the book an interesting, engaging, and stimulating read. Fiduciary management is a very timely topic and is especially relevant for smaller pension plans that may lack in-house expertise. Such plans would benefit from outside help. The book covers a lot of ground. Dr. van Nunen shares with us his valuable insights and experience in his discussion of the pitfalls and complexities of asset management. Anyone who manages a defined benefit pension plan can benefit from reading this book.' --Josef Lakonishok, CEO and CIO of LSV Asset Management

FABOZZI, Yale School of Management, USA, and Editor of The Journal of Portfolio Management 'Koedijk and Slager have made a major contribution to the knowledge on investment beliefs and have become the current thought leaders on this topic. If your investment fund does not have a clear set of investment beliefs, give this book to every member of your Investment Committee, and it soon will.' Graham Pugh, Investment Risk Management, OMERS 'Sound investment beliefs are an important addition to the toolkit of trustees and their asset managers. This book is a helpful guide to make it work.' Else Bos, Chief Institutional Business and Executive Committee member PGGM 'As a pension fund trustee you should focus on the important issues for your pension fund like the risk appetite, the asset allocation and the choice of investment instruments. This process of understanding, making choices and supervising implementation can be approached in a structured way by formulating and discussing the investments belief system. This book shows you the way. Koedijk and Slager do a great job in bridging the gap between academic research and everyday practice. By reading and applying it, you will greatly increase the effectiveness of your board role.' Professor Jean Frijns, VU University Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Costs and Benefits of Collective Pension Systems
137,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Dutch pension system is often praised as one of the best in the world: it is efficient, it provides certainty to participants and it preserves cohesion and solidarity among workers and pensioners. This book presents these benefits in detail, supported by quantitative evidence. It also discusses the aspects of the system that are less favourable, however, such as implicit value transfers from younger to older generations that limit mobility of labour. The analyses of both benefits and costs will help pension fund managers, boards of trustees, supervisors, and researchers to understand and to improve pension systems currently in place around the world. 'The Dutch are the globe's thought-leaders in the design and implementation of retirement income systems. This book offers the rest of the world a first-hand opportunity to learn why this is the case' (Keith Ambachtsheer, Director, Rotman International Centre for Pension Management University of Toronto) TOC:S.G. van der Lecq, O.W.
