Bridging the Gaps Between …

a) strategic desires and operational realities and 
b) finance folk and technical folk!

John Woodhouse, CEO, TWPL

One of the biggest challenges in asset management is the injection of long-term thinking (strategic goals and sustainability) while under pressure to deliver short term results. This paper shows how leading asset management organizations are achieving both at the same time. It also explains how we can help technical folk convince financial folk about what needs to be done, when and why – in terms that financial folk can understand (value-for-money).
