Lipper 2012 First Quarter Special Topic WebEx Replay: Lipper Subadvisor Research Series--Mutual Fund Subadvisors: Impact on Investors
Published on 10 Apr 2012 by Sasha Franger
Sasha Franger reviewed the findings of Lipper’s three-part research series on subadvised funds. This series compared subadvised funds to funds that are not subadvised by expenses, performance, and flows. Taken together, subadvised funds do not vary significantly or predictably from their non-subadvised counterparts. This points to the conclusion that the subadvisor status of the fund does not impact the investor nor do investors take the subadvisor status of a fund into account when choosing a mutual fund.
