Institutional Investor Magazine Methodology
A short-list of top performing managers in each of the 39 strategies was identified by Institutional Investor’s editorial and research teams in consultation with eVestment’s research team. Investment strategies were analyzed based on factors such as one-, three- and five-year performance, Sharpe ratio, information ratio, standard deviation and upside market capture. Each category is analyzed based on the factors used by institutional investors in their own searches on eVestment.
More than 1,000 leading U.S. pension plans, foundations, endowments and other institutional investors were then surveyed and asked to vote for up to three managers in each strategy in which they invest that demonstrated the best overall performance during the past year.
Institutional Investor's editorial team analyzed the survey results to determine the winners.
