He Wrote the Book On Alternative Assets
A decade ago, when Mark J. P. Anson, then California Public Employees’ Retirement System's chief investment officer, went through the Chartered Alternative Investment program, there was no textbook. So he wrote one. Today, his 847 page book -- CAIA Level I -- has just been updated and it is the leading work on alternative assets. Anson, who is still the chief writer, says his goal was to write, "Not only a textbook but a reference book that any person who’s investing in alternatives could use as just that, a handy reference."
