"This publication is a compilation of several notable presentations made at our 11th Annual Plan Sponsor & Emerging Manager Conference, where over one hundred emerging managers, plan sponsor clients, pension consultants and other professionals gathered to explore the changing face of the investment management industry and how plan sponsors and emerging managers can stay not only abreast, but in front of changes underway in our industry," Thurman V. White, President of Progress, said today. "Although useful to anyone in the broader asset management industry, this book is particularly valuable to plan sponsors and emerging asset managers, as it contains presentations from leading authorities on both sides of the table, as well as insights from investment and marketing professionals and others who are contributing to the form and substance of the rapidly evolving field of emerging investment management."

Progress is scheduled to hold their 12th Annual Plan Sponsor and Emerging Manager Conference November 18-20, 2007 in Scottsdale, Arizona.
