Nearly every financial
institution, at one time or another, aspires to be ranked as high-performing.
Much like every professional money manager strives to beat the
“market” for their respective asset class, financial institution
leaders seek to deliver return performances which exceed their respective
benchmarks over extended periods of time. Being ranked in the top quartile of
your respective peer group is the ultimate achievement.
