The Journal is the Investment Institute’s flagship annual publication. It features contributions from Investec Asset Management’s investment specialists as well as highly regarded academics and external practitioners. In our fourth Journal, we explore how to generate resilient, long-term returns in an age of uncertainty: the current low-growth, low-yield and increasingly complex investment environment.

In The Investor’s View, we talk to executives of some of the world’s leading asset owners. They discuss their approach to long-term investing, where they see new opportunities and how they are facing up to the challenges of the current macroeconomic environment.
