The added value of performance and risk analysis continues to be realized across the value chain, not only by asset managers, but also their clients. As a result, the buy-side is under far more pressure to deliver more and differentiated result sets to their investors, with transparency into the correlation between investment risk and portfolio performance. And while the unification of performance and risk is not a new idea, its practical application is still a work in progress for many firms. So what does integration mean for investment decision-making, risk analysis and performance reporting, and how should firms evolve their systems, processes and teams to adapt?

On December 6, 2016, BISAM's Sean Murray hosted a roundtable discussion to address these questions, looking at the evolution of performance measurement and market risk from both a theoretical perspective and as a practical application within asset management firms. You can now listen to the roundtable on demand at Following is a brief summary of the discussion.



Who: Daryl Bradford, Vice President Performance & Attribution Manager, Acadian Asset Management, David Spaulding, CEO and Founder, The Spaulding Group and Peter Ellis, Director, PK Consulting. The discussion was attended by nearly 200 buy-side practititoners who participated in the live webinar polls and Q&A.

What: Evolution towards unification of performance and risk: what path led the industry to where we are today, and what might be next steps? Risk-adjusted analytics: How is this defined and applied to results analysis? Practical implications of P+R integration: examples of how teams can be organized to deliver and the benefits expected from new processes.
