The Benchmark Puzzle

2nd Oct 2015

The bank hosted a round table discussion on Friday 2nd October titled “The Benchmark Puzzle” where guests explored the perceptions and misconceptions of benchmark choice.

Hosts from the bank were joined by Chief Investment Officers from several other leading wealth management firms for a lively discussion around how they use benchmarking tools to measure returns.

The points discussed at the round table included asking “what are the main objectives for a benchmark?”, whether benchmarks influence behaviours and whether the industry is doing enough to help its customers to understand benchmarks.
