Industry funds or AMP, it’s all about brand

AMP has a long road ahead. But the big challenge isn’t to change the culture – it’s making everybody else care about it. For decades, the AMP logo has sat high above Sydney Harbour, a potent symbol of one of Australia’s oldest companies and an integral part of what many consider entirely peripheral: brand. Now…

Cheaters never prosper – but active managers do

When it comes to the question of who’s actually doing the research work, investors know the answer. And they don’t feel like sitting on the sidelines during a crisis. Some trends you can see from space. Inflows into ESG equity funds on the Calastone network between January and November were US$30 billion – 60 per…

Why Douglass was right (and wrong) on omicron

The emergence of omicron has seen plenty of blood in the streets, and the quiet vindication of one of Australia’s most divisive investors. But doomsday has been postponed again. Like him or hate him, Hamish Douglass was (probably) right. Lambasted for the subpar performance of Magellan’s flagship global equity strategy during an incredible bull run…

Industry has “underwhelmed” on innovation: Schroders CEO

Manufacturers and super funds alike need to do more on the burning issue of retirement products. So far, they’ve failed to innovate.

‘Alpha isn’t enough’: Tough lessons for funds on engagement

Member engagement is starting to rise from a very low base. But the industry is still “net nowhere” when it comes to winning their hearts and minds. It’s widely acknowledged that member engagement remains unacceptably low. Try as they might, super funds can’t seem to get members to care about their retirement savings, as evidenced…

  • No scars, but still a Covid hangover

    The economic aftermath of Covid-19 was never going to be as bad as it seemed at the time. But governments will be hooked on splashing cash. “Economic scarring” was all anybody could talk about in the immediate aftermath of the first wave of Covid-19, and for good reason; it’s well understood that the effects of…

    Don’t take blue chips for granted: Marks

    Today’s investors are “riding for a fall”, according to Oaktree Capital founder Howard Marks. Markets could well be in for a repeat of the Nifty Fifty. When Howard Marks was just starting his career in finance in 1969, the preceding 20 years had been “a “mostly unchanging backdrop… in front of which events and cycles…

    Why the super party might be over

    Strong super returns are about to encounter significant headwinds. And with the government prowling for more money, funds might once again foot the bill.

    You can’t teach an old manager new tricks: Hyperion

    Active manages have failed to heed changing times – and changing markets. But while Hyperion doesn’t do “concept stocks”, it’s got its eyes on plenty of disruptors. The great elephant in the room for active managers has been their inability to outperform the index long-term. Around 93.4 per cent of international equity managers and 86.3…
