Program Description:
The asset management industry is in the early days of a third stage of disruption. Stage one was active vs. passive in long-only portfolios, stage two was the advent of smart beta, and now technology is helping to re-make the 2 & 20 hedge fund model. This latest disruption should improve transparency for asset allocators.
