Benefits (and pitfalls) of long-term investing

Geoff Warren
Three key advantages held by long-term investors include: the capacity to adopt positions where payoff timing is uncertain; the ability to exploit opportunities generated by the actions of short-term investors; and latitude to invest in unlisted and/or illiquid assets. These advantages provide access to a broader investment opportunity set than available to short-term investors.

Delegation, trust and defaulting in retirement savings: Perspectives from plan executives and members

Adam Butt, Scott Donald, Doug Foster, Susan Thorp & Geoff Warren
We combine survey data from retirement plan members with information from interviews with plan executives to get both perspectives on who accepts the default plan and default investment option and why.

Detroit: what lessons for Victoria from a ‘post-industrial’ city?

Tom Barnes
Victoria’s manufacturing sector has been in decline for several years. A range of workplace closures – not least the announcement by Australia’s last remaining carmakers that local motor vehicle manufacturing would be wound-down by 2016-17 – have had a significant impact on communities. Job losses threaten to undermine households and community cohesion. How affected cities and regions respond to these challenges is extremely important, including the collaborative efforts of government, business and community organisations. In...
