Session Description:
Seeking investment advice from, or delegating tasks to, an outside party is one of the many duties a JPA staff or governing body member carries. Given the importance of the investment portfolio in supporting the JPA’s financial goals, it is important to remember that not all expertise is created equal. Your JPA may be following recommendations that involve conflicts of interests, fees, and opportunity costs that aren’t made apparent. This session will review the different types of third-parties providing investment advice, how to identify & assess the appropriateness of recommendations your JPA might receive, and how following certain guidance can lead to beneficial or detrimental outcomes to the investment portfolio.
