Today’s professional investors have unrivalled choice when it comes to selecting the right vehicles to expand their portfolios. Over the last 200 years, mutual funds have become especially popular.
High-net-worth individuals (HNWIs), family offices and institutional investors are often drawn in by promises of attractive returns and fund managers who can consistently outperform the markets.
But is everything as it seems in the mutual funds world? Affinity Capital’s latest whitepaper ‘Death by a Thousand Scratches: Is Mutual Fund Money Going to Waste’ unveils the true story behind industry claims.
For example, did you know that 86 per cent of large-cap fund managers failed to deliver the returns they advertised to clients in 2014? Meanwhile, as fund managers continue to underperform, hidden fees and costs erode investor capital away each year.
This is a death by 1,000 scratches; so slow, insidious and infectious that many people don’t know it’s happening until it’s too late. Thankfully, there are alternative options for investors who want to manage their risk profile and enjoy predefined returns that are clearly established from the outset.
Death by a Thousand Scratches analyses the past, present and future of investment banking, highlighting how mutual fund money could be put to better use through structured investments.
Despite negative coverage, structures are a crucial part of many investors’ portfolios, including renowned business magnate Warren Buffett. Our whitepaper shows how a range of institutional investors and HNWIs can benefit from this underappreciated asset class through key partnerships, innovative pricing models and access to the world’s biggest investment banks.
