Description: For nearly 50 years, the Investment Management Workshop (IMW) has convened the world’s top principals, portfolio managers, and executives to explore the latest strategies and best practices in asset management. Developed by Harvard Business School (HBS) Executive Education and CFA Institute, this renowned industry forum focuses on improving strategic decision making in three integrated areas—asset management, business strategy and development, and investment strategy and execution. You will explore real-world cases with a diverse group of industry peers and emerge with new insights on how to optimize your strategic edge.

What You Can Expect
Delivered in the unique Harvard Business School case method style, you will work with a small group of global peers on a broad range of real-world cases that examine current and emerging developments in asset management. Focused on strategic decision making, key topics include the following:

Evaluating and implementing innovative investment strategies across all segments of the industry, including asset allocators, public and private equities, fixed income, and passive strategies
Analyzing disruptive innovations in the investment management industry
For asset management firms, examining strategic drivers of growth and profitability as well as building and maximizing their strategic and investing edges
For asset allocators, exploring the latest trends and innovations in investment policy design and execution as well as the organization of institutional investors

Your Course of Study
Over four intensive days, you will be immersed in cases studies on timely topics, interactive lectures, and small group discussions. Often, the case protagonists—individuals intimately involved in or directly affiliated with the cases being studied—attend one of the case discussions. In addition, each evening a leader from the asset management industry joins participants as a keynote speaker to lend further insights into current investment management issues.

This program is ideal for rising executives in investment management organizations—including firms focused on hedge fund and private equity investing—as well as pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, endowments, and investment consulting firms.
