How Are Investment Manager Selection Procedures Changing?

The investment manager selection for managed portfolios has changed in the wake of the near financial meltdown that took place in 2008.

Wake Up Call for Disciplined Investing

The change in procedures was created by the near financial collapse of 2008 and has served as a wake-up call to investment managers and other professionals. As stewards of the country’s financial and economic system, a greater level of discipline and responsibility is required to properly assess risk and protect the interests of the investing public.

It does mean weighing unknown risks with investment techniques that help protect investors from a loss that can create an extremely problematic situation.
