Capital Allocators: How the World’s Elite Money Managers Lead and Invest, with Ted Seides, MBA ’99 (virtual)

Wed, 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM Zoom Webinar (Information to be sent to Registrants)
General PublicFinance


The chief investment officers (CIOs) at endowments, foundations, family offices, pension funds, and sovereign wealth funds are the leaders in the world of finance. They marshal trillions of dollars on behalf of their institutions and influence how capital flows throughout the world.

But these elite investors live outside of the public eye. Across the entire investment industry, few participants understand how these holders of the keys to the kingdom allocate their time and their capital.

What’s more, there is no formal training for how to do their work.

So how do these influential leaders practice their craft? What skills do they require? What frameworks do they employ? How do they make investment decisions on everything from hiring managers to portfolio construction?

For the first time, Capital Allocators (Harriman House, Mar. 2021) lifts the lid on this opaque corner of the investment landscape.

Drawing on interviews from the first 150 episodes of the Capital Allocators podcast, Ted Seides presents the best of the knowledge, practical insights, and advice of the world’s top professional investors.

These insights include:
• The best practices for interviewing, decision-making, negotiations, leadership, and management.
• Investment frameworks across governance, strategy, process, technological innovation, and uncertainty.
• The wisest and most impactful quotes from guests on the Capital Allocators podcast.

Learn from the likes of the CIOs at the endowments of Princeton and Notre Dame, family offices of Michael Bloomberg and George Soros, pension funds from the State of Florida, CalSTRS, and Canadian CDPQ, sovereign wealth funds of New Zealand and Australia, and many more.

Capital Allocators is the essential new reference manual for current and aspiring CIOs, the money managers that work with them, and everyone allocating a pool of capital.

Participants must register by 5PM on October 11th to receive details on joining the discussion. The Zoom link will be sent out 24 hours before the event.

Please note that no refunds will be issued.
