Ronald N. Kahn reiterated 7 trends in Investment Management in the CFA Institute Annual Conference recently, which he highlighted in his book “The Future of Investment Management”. If you are in the investment management industry like me, you should take note of these trends.
You can read the summary here.
If you have more time, you can read the full book here. I have always preferred reading books from practitioners or learning from them as they can relate to the real world, it’s more practical but at the same time they rely on theories that seem very complex to us to understand. Ronald N. Kahn is one of them, and he works at Blackrock, the world’s largest asset manager as the MD of Global Head of Scientific Equity Research. So we ought to learn from him.
Among the 7 trends he highlighted, trend number 4 on Big Data is something that every investment professional should pay more attention at.
