Beyond Asset Management. Diversity of Thought.
Illusion of Diversity
Throughout many industries, finance included, we see the illusion of diversity happen time and again.
The same people who believe that diversifying a portfolio can help achieve better returns, lack diversity throughout their own organizations.
They ask questions during the interview process that can lead to unintended consequences such as "group think".
Where did you grow up?
Where did you go to school?
Who was your professor?
If the answers provided are the same, or very similar, to the person asking the questions, a sense of comfort sets in giving applications an opportunity.
The net result is a room full of investment professionals who have been trained to think in a very similar manner.
Clear Alternatives strives to deliver diversity of thought. Each of us come from different backgrounds, enhancing our ability to understand issues from various perspectives.
