Is our portfolio built to take the appropriate level of risk and how much would we lose in the worst times?
Most institutional investors and their consultants rely on their managers’ track record to assess the level of risk they are taking, but as has been shown many times in financial markets, past performance can be a poor predictor of future results. There is a particular risk that all managers will correlate when you most need them to diversify.
