The result of such claims can expose the defending party to a variety of different consequences.  Investment performance being substandard or being perceived to being substandard can be the result of a variety of factors.  Understanding what can negatively impact the performance of an investment portfolio or investment product in terms of absolute return or relative return is the first step in managing investment performance risk.  The second step is having risk management process that provides for an ongoing evaluation of these factors so as to avoid any factor having a negative impact on investment performance.  The role and responsibility of managing investment performance risk resides firstly with the individuals managing the investment and secondly to the individuals introducing portfolio management services or an investment product to an investor.  However, the risk management function and senior management of the business have an important role in overseeing the management of this risk.
