‘Is that the best outcome?’: Member inequality lurks in illiquids

Despite their surging popularity, risks lurk within illiquid assets that put member outcomes and portfolio quality at risk – and there’s little regulation for handling them.

Grantham calls ‘the death of the vampire’

Jeremy Grantham believes the “superbubble” he’s been warning about for years is now on the brink of collapse – and that the “wild rumpus” can begin at any time.

Why slow and steady still wins the race

In a world of concept stocks and near-meaningless valuation metrics, the trick to beating the market might well be ignoring it. “Hedge funds aren’t supposed to be a high-risk proposition,” says Omkar Joshi, principal and portfolio manager of Opal Capital Management. “They do get cast in a bad light, and that’s because there’s been lots…

    Josh Frydenberg’s unilateral changes to proxy advice regulation look increasingly unjustifiable. The question that remains is why they were forced through in the first place.

    Inflation volatility looms in ‘a dangerous time for markets’: Ruffer

    The tide is coming in for inflation – but that doesn’t mean there won’t be significant volatility along the way.

    ASIC narrows super ‘insider trading’ investigation

    ASIC’s investigation into potential “insider trading” at a number of superannuation funds appears to be approaching its end – but the issue seems far from settled.
