On the value of thought leadership:

“The media landscape puts a premium on swift production of quality content, and reporters are under constant pressure from deadlines and the 24-hour news cycle. Insightful investment thoughts, concisely presented, can be an incredibly useful resource for time-starved journalist’s in today’s environment, and a building block for strong, mutually beneficial relationships between asset management firms and these media contacts.”
