Chief Investment Officer’s seventh annual list of the world’s most influential investment consultants.

Each year, CIO identifies some of the top knowledge brokers in the industry. Tasked with identifying the best investment managers and financial firms, these knowledge brokers are liaisons for some of the most competitive portfolios in the world. Their job is often to identify new opportunities in the investment landscape and help to create a power team of asset owner, manager, and financial firms in alignment with a chief investment officer’s goals. They consider fees, technology, performance, and time horizons. They scout global as well as micro-local opportunities, often aligning them with generational data. Above all, they consider the delicate mix of risk and opportunity as it applies to a CIO’s portfolio to create an investment that can withstand the test of time.
