Why RisCura’s Manager Development Programme
Building capacity: Today’s investment industry is not fully representative of the regional demographics that investment managers serve. Partnering with RisCura helps investors to take active steps by focusing on areas in the market that support diversity and build future capacity.
Skills development: Growing the industry into a more representative one is more than just supporting managers (entrepreneurs). It is also about promoting investment skillsets, particularly alternatives, through skills development within the firms that we support to empower the next generation to become globally competitive.
Supporting women-owned and led firms: We recognise that greater levels of gender diversity is required across the industry. The programme aims to support firms that are women-owned and led to create a more inclusive investment industry.
Key pillars of the programme
RisCura’s portfolio management function ensures that the Manager Development Programme’s overall portfolio structuring, risk management, discretionary implementation, Limited Partner Advisory Committee representation and asset allocation alignment through the use of derivatives are managed on an active basis.
RisCura’s investment research team identifies the investment managers that will be supported through the Manager Development Programme by conducting detailed due diligence covering investments and operations. The process also includes extensive engagement on items such as mandate alignment, and continuous investment and operations monitoring.
The manager support function is the most crucial part of the Manager Development Programme. RisCura is able to leverage our global investment expertise to support investment managers in all areas of investment management, including risk management, business functionality and governance matters. With regular and intentional engagements our team of experts are able to provide crucial guidance and support to the investment managers within the programme.
