NAAIM Issues a Call for 2019 Active Investing Strategy Competitors
The National Association of Active Investment Managers (NAAIM) has issued a renewed call for competitors for its Active Investing Strategy Competition (AISC). Since 2013, this unique challenge has allowed investment managers to gain exposure to new ideas employing active management strategies, possibly leading to new business relationships.
Investment Managers wishing to participate are requested to submit a written application to the Competition Committee for consideration. Finalists will present their strategies at the NAAIM Uncommon Knowledge Conference in Scottsdale, AZ on May 7, 2023.
For Investment Managers who employ active strategies, competing in NAAIM’s AISC provides exposure to a room full of Advisors, many of whom are seeking viable sub-advisory relationships. It’s an opportunity to describe your investment approach to the markets in your own words and answer questions posed by a panel of seasoned professionals.
The opportunity to present your active strategy to other Advisors representing literally billions of dollars of client assets doesn’t come around every day. The NAAIM competition could provide the exposure necessary to take your business to the next level. The winning Investment Manager will also be awarded the following 2023 Grand Prize Package:

Last month we sent a short survey to the managers listing programs on the Theta Research site and the results are in. Our big goal was to learn which performance metrics were important to them, and how we can improve the reporting on our site. The feedback has been invaluable!
Overall, our managers are happy with our service and use terms like “reliable,” “high quality” and “good value for the money” to describe us. The performance and risk statistics shown now seem to be the most important to them, although adding additional statistics, such as Sharpe and Sortino ratios, would be desirable.
They particularly expressed that the site needs a facelift and the ability to better view the manager pages on a mobile device. Selectable start and end dates for statistics also made the update list, as did default benchmarks and a fact sheet option.
