This talk and panel discussion features Dr. Leanne ten Brinke, a forensic psychologist and Assistant Professor at the University of Denver, Sara Yarmand, formerly of CPPIB and James Jung of Avenue Living, speaking on deep diligence (such as that done by Texas Municipal Retirement) where insight into managers’ efficacy and motivations are taken to the next level.

The session will start with a primer from Dr. ten Brinke followed by a discussion of deep diligence and how to spot good (and not-so-good) managers.

After the panel, attendees can head to the rooftop of The National Club where we have our Annual Toronto Summer Social.
