In this short video from the panel discussion at the recent Citywire Virtual South Africa event, fund selectors look at how important diversity of thought is within an investment team.

The other kind of diversification

Diversification across asset classes is critical to any multi-asset strategy, but do asset managers and fund selectors pay enough attention to the diversity of the people making those allocation decisions?
