Measurement, Governance and Long-term Investing

 
Measurement, Governance and Long-term Investing

Measurement, Governance and Long-term Investing explores how difficulties faced by long-term investors –pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, foundations, endowments, insurers and family offices – in measuring investment values and returns, risks and liabilities intersect with the governance of long-term investors themselves.

The report argues that, without effective governance, measurement schemes can distort decision-making around which investments are chosen and the time frame over which they are held. Yet the lack of meaningful, intuitive measurements for performance and risk over long time horizons adds more complexity to long-term investing and the governance of such efforts.
