NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 15, 2013) - Institutional Investor Journals has launched Practical Applications. This weekly, web-based service comprises concise reports that dissect the scholarly research in The Journal of Portfolio Management and other impactful articles across Institutional Investor Journals' suite of 11 journals.

These concise reports uncover actionable items that may not be easily extracted from highly technical articles. Practical Applications is an innovative editorial product that fills the gap between abstract and full article for busy institutional portfolio managers, heads of research and investment strategists.

Practical Applications allows readers to keep up with current thought leadership in institutional investing strategies and enables them to target which articles to explore in further detail. Experienced financial journalists conduct exclusive interviews with source article authors to obtain their views on who can utilize their research findings and, more importantly, how! These journalists ask the right questions to get the information you need to gain an edge in an increasingly competitive marketplace.

Practical Applications reports consist of:

  • An easily digestible overview of the source article
  • A concise explanation of who will benefit from this research
  • Clear recommendations on how to apply the findings
  • Key definitions for an easier understanding
  • Brief biographies of the source article authors

Subscribers to Practical Applications enjoy weekly reports on the web with linkage to and from source articles and to and from a glossary of key definitions. They receive email alerts featuring the week's new content and a quarterly printed collection of the latest reports.

Access two free reports, including video interviews, to see why you need to subscribe to Practical Applications today! They are based on exclusive interviews with industry thought leaders Cliff Asness of AQR Capital Management and Wai Lee of Neuberger Berman.
