Hedge Fund Awards 2015

Hedge Fund Awards 2015 www.acquisition-intl.com 88 Redington is an independent, employee-owned investment consultant to UK pension funds and other long-term savings institutions. A clear, framework-based approach allows consultants to totally focus on each cli- ent’s unique objectives and constraints in order to deliver better outcomes. Founded in 2006, Redington currently has £350bn in assets under consulting and 62 clients. The manager research team’s goal is to know clients’ managers so well that they do not need to. It is vital that clients feel informed and in control, so their governance budget is better spent on the things that matter most. The firm believes that beauty parades and drawn-out manager selection exercises are not the best way to appoint managers. Over the past 18 months, Pete Drewienkiewicz and his team have redesigned Redington’s manager research process from scratch so it best meets the needs of clients. The new process streamlines the practice of both hiring and firing managers. This includes the develop- ment of high-conviction “Preferred Lists” across all strat- egies recommended to clients, use of a proprietary 10 factor screening process to select, assess and monitor managers and an early warning system (“Red Radar”) to flag important developments to both managers and clients. The firm adds that fund manager monitoring by consultants needs to go beyond performance and risk reporting, so it actually helps clients to anticipate issues and engage systematically with managers.
