Investors Not Acting In Their Own Best Interest

McKenna concluded, “While the future of the industry will be determined by the actions investors take, the investment community has clear opportunities to work together to create better solutions for this new economy.”

About The Study

The Influential Investor: How Investor Behavior is Redefining Performance is based on input from more than 3,300 investment management industry participants across 68 countries. The State Street Center for Applied Research obtained this input through surveys of 2,725 investors, and 403 investment providers and government officials. Surveys were conducted through an online platform in collaboration with the Economist Intelligence Unit, Scorpio Partnership and TNS Finance Amsterdam. In addition, the Center for Applied Research conducted face-to-face interviews with 200 executives and government officials from around the world to gain qualitative insights for our research. The study is available at http://statestreet.com/centerforappliedresearch.
