Mediocre funds with high fees better watch out


Among the interviews this week on Wealth Adviser is one with Catalyst, a firm that specialises in transforming old hedge funds into new mutual funds. It’s happening in the US at the moment, but may well come over here as David Miller of Catalyst says: ‘Mediocre hedge funds have had their day’.

It’s the fees that are particularly unwelcome with the traditional hedge fund – the 2 and 20 model is hard to sell if the fund isn’t performing particularly well.

And performance attribution is another subject we have taken on this week, profiling RiskFirst’s Matthew Bale and their new product, PFaroe Attribution, which seeks to attribute performance success where it’s due.
