Pensions & Investments and the University of Oxford are co-sponsoring a survey on the use of knowledge management by investment management firms.
Asset owners, money managers and investment consultants are encouraged to participate in the online survey, available at www.pionline.com/kmsurvey.
Knowledge management involves constructing strategies and processes to identify and capture all of a firm's sources of knowledge, then making it accessible to all employees. It also involves creating knowledge.
It has been an academic discipline since the early 1990s, and is used by at least a few money management firms.
The survey will include questions on what kinds of knowledge are most important to generating market and excess returns, when knowledge management is most important to a money management firm, and whether firms should invest in systems for institutionalizing knowledge management.
Responses will be accepted through Sept. 2. A story on the results of the survey will be published in the Sept. 30 issue of P&I; related content will be posted at PIonline.com. n
