In Delivering Alpha, she reveals principles and methods designed to improve the ability to add value to portfolios by responding to the changing states of the world. The author shares expert advice on creating a successful decision-making governance structure, building the right policy portfolio, structuring asset classes, measuring and managing risks, and more. Light on theory and serious on practice, this is a detailed and actionable roadmap to building alpha consistently over time"-- "Lessons from 30 years of successful investing and the rules involved"--
