This presentation is focused on defining and explaining cross-asset decision making. This is the idea that investments are allocated by analyzing the perceived needs of multiple programs and asset classes and are distributed based upon the simultaneous quantified prioritization of utility. It focuses on three types–benefit/cost analysis, multi-criteria decision analysis, and risk/reward-based. The presentation slides are available here.
