New blog geared toward institutional investors

If your daily work-oriented web surfing isn't turning up anything you can actually use, you might want to try a new blog, Investable Thinking.

The website — www.nb.com/ investable-thinking — was launched last month and is the brainchild of the fertile minds at Neuberger Berman LLC, New York.

The blog is “a compendium of timely, market-driven insights from Neuberger Berman, geared to the needs of institutional investors,” said Joseph V. Amato, president and chief investment officer, in a statement on the site.

It's clear from the first few posts that the blog is deliberately geared toward institutions rather than retail investors. Among the topics are issues facing many pension fund CIOs such as “Environment Calls for Flexible Spread Sector Allocation,” “Emerging Market Economies — A Structural Reduction of Risk” and “Security Selection and Market Fundamentals Could Benefit Non-Agency RMBS Investors.”

If these subjects don't appeal to readers, they are urged to suggest other topics and to provide feedback, good or bad.
