(Extract of the Preface)

"In January 2011, the Center and CED, in conjunction with The Aspen Institute
Business and Society Program, co-sponsored a research roundtable on institutional investors attended by academics, think-tank analysts, leading practitioners and former regulators. The purpose was to crystallize the need for research on these subjects.

The research roundtable focused on three major questions:
• Do institutional investors adequately advance the goals of the individuals who
have invested in them?
• Do institutional investors contribute significantly to “undesirable short-termism”
in their publicly held investee companies?
• Can institutional investors become more effective “stewards” of publicly held
investee corporations?"

L'échec est la prémisse du changement. Sans la douleur qu'il inflige, il n'y a pas de remise en question. Transformer une défaite en succès requiert donc de la souffrance. Celle-ci nous rend aussi plus humbles à l'égard de nos réussites, car on sait vraiment ce qu'il aura fallu pour y parvenir.
