Risks related to financial portfolio investment managers
Pension funds, endowments, family offices, fund of funds, and other funds diversify their portfolio risks by investing in different geographies through different asset managers. Manager selection is a cumbersome and detailed process. With 20 years experience in fund management, and having contributed to fund selection, style drift, and portfolio through several academic papers and studies we can help you by giving a third party independent opinion on your fund managers’ performance. Here are some risks embedded in managers:
An investor hires a fund manager, investment style drifts the investor takes risks it should not be taking
An investor’s fund manager does not know how it performs on trades
An investor hires a fund manager whose investment process or tools are flawed
