TMI 167 - Jul/Aug 2008

Seeking Investment Returns 

Forget John Grisham and Jackie Collins - this month's essential beach reading is all about investment. The period which we are in has frequently been referred to as a time of ‘economic uncertainty' - no-one knows quite what's happening, what will happen and indeed, in many cases, what has happened. So does this mean that we should forgo our annual jaunt to the beach and be peering at our Bloomberg or Reuters screens instead?

Among the many articles written by Treasurers in this issue, you can also read a Special Report  focusing on questions such as "How are corporates changing their investment processes, and is this necessary?".
