UK - Specialist manager evaluation firm Inalytics has launched a monthly transparency report as a further tool for pension funds to monitor the managers they have selected.
The firm said the report would show how the decisions taken by managers have changed the shape of the portfolio - in terms of regions, sectors and stocks - either through trading activity or market movements.
In addition, the report would point out whether the skills displayed by the managers prior to the crisis were still in evidence.
It would also highlight concentration risk with the managers taking identical views on markets, sectors and stocks.
The firm said prior to the escalation of the credit crisis, pension funds had shown an increased interest in improving the monitoring of their asset managers and their overall governance.
It concluded the current crisis had accelerated that trend.
