Defeating Short-Terminism, Why Pension Funds Must Lead

NSFM participant, Ed Waitzer, has published "Defeating Short-Termism, Why Pension Funds Must Lead," in the Fall 2009 Issue of the Rotman International Journal of Pension Management.  He argues that one of the lessons from the recent market crisis is the interconnected nature of the challenges we face, and that we can no longer afford myopic responses. This reality has material implications for pension fund trustees and managers.  The time has come for them to lead rather than be dragged along.
