Den Herausgebern ist zu danken, dass sie einen solchen Kreis von Experten gewonnen und mehr als ein Mosaik von Einzelaspekten zusammengestellt haben. Dass Zeichentrickfilme als Anlageobjekte die höchsten Rendi ten, aber auch die höchsten Risiken mit sich bringen, ist einer der vielen "Aha-Effekte" dieses Buches. Bann, im März 2003 PROFESSOR DR. HORST ALBACH Vorwort In den vergangenen fünf Jahren haben die Investmentaktivitäten deutscher institutioneller Anleger in zunehmenden Maße das fachliche Interesse all derjenigen auf sich gezogen, die mittelbar oder unmittelbar mit diesem Themenkreis in Verbindung stehen. Dazu zählen zunächst die Entscheidungsträger und Aufsichtsgremien von institutionellen Inves toren, wie Versicherungen, Banken und Altersversorgungseinrichtungen, aber auch die Dienstleister dieser Institutionen, die Medien und nicht zuletzt die Wissenschaft.
