There’s Real Value In Knowing Your Team’s Social Capital

There’s Real Value In Knowing Your Team’s Social Capital

Last year I stumbled upon an article in Institutional Investor with the following subtitle: “Have friends, will travel: an argument for the Social Capital Manager.” The general premise of the article by Ashby Monk is that relationships have real economic value, and so our financial and investment models should take those relationships into account. Because we haven’t yet realized this future, Monk argues, we should be investing in a Social Capital Manager as a C-level role that focuses on external relationships and networking.
