Active Investment Management looks at where active management has come from, where it is today, what problems it faces and where the answers to these questions are leading it. The book addresses the major issues concerning the key groups within the industry. Charles Jackson's wonderfully readable book will be essential reading for the practitioner and is broken down into five sections covering the whole spectrum of active investment management: * asset classes and products * balancing risk and return * active product selection * the nature of skill * the price of skill .
