Fund managers continue to face new challenges and adapt their strategies to survive in the current climate. They are focused on addressing new regulations and compliance requirements as well as enhancing their relationship with investors. As for investors, with thousands of investment funds available, choosing where to commit cash is certainly no easy task. And although investing money alongside others allows an investor to benefit from the inherent advantages that come with operating within a group dynamic, a certain amount of legwork is required, including making detailed assessments of fund investment strategies and performing in-depth mathematical analysis to identify the funds that have produced consistent outperformance.
