Putting “Watch Lists” on Watch?

Watch Lists

Many institutional investors use “watch lists” as part of their process for monitoring investment managers. Although watch lists typically don’t require automatic termination of underperforming managers, they often orient fiduciaries toward considering termination. At the same time, there is significant evidence that investors have destroyed value through excessive manager turnover.

The criteria in watch lists are often misaligned with the views of the fiduciaries. One of our greatest concerns is that many watch lists over-emphasize short- and medium-term performance. This can focus the fiduciaries’ attention away from other, more important factors. In such situations, watch lists do not serve their intended purpose well.
