Whatever the reason, many suggest there are benefits to backing a fund from an early stage – particularly if you have done your homework

Significant amounts of investors’ cash flows to just a handful of talented people in the world of fund management.

However, once a fund manager has built that all-important track record and attracted billions of pounds, the performance that follows can sometimes prove disappointing or mediocre at best. This could be attributed to the newfound pressure on the manager or the fact that running a significantly larger portfolio has caused them to adapt or compromise their investment style.

Whatever the reason, many suggest there are benefits to backing a fund from an early stage – particularly if you have done your homework. But this is not always easy for wealth managers and discretionary investment managers because some are unable to invest in funds that have less than £100 million under management or have a track record of less than three years.
