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.

Lipper 2011 Third Quarter Special Topic WebEx Replay: Lipper 2011 Subadvisor Research Series--Part 1: Subadvisor Fees and Expenses

Published on 10 Oct 2011, by Sasha Franger
Subadvised funds, or funds whose portfolios are managed by an outside investment company, have taken center stage this year in part because of excessive fee lawsuits sought by investors. Sasha Franger examines the subadvisor fee to determine if an additional fee is tacked onto the existing management fee, or if other expenses decrease to compensate for the cost of the subadvisor. In addition, Sasha looks at how much of the management fee is actually retained by the advisor and/or administrator. Finally, she recommends supplementary subadvisor report content for fund management companies and boards of directors to examine during the contractual renewal process.

Lipper 2011 Third Quarter Fund Flows Review WebEx Replay

Published on 10 Oct 2011, by Matthew Lemieux
Matthew Lemieux reviews preliminary mutual fund flow numbers for the third quarter 2011 in this WebEx replay. In line with expectations after a disastrous quarter for fund performance, the conventional mutual fund business experienced preliminary quarterly outflows of $125.0 billion. Equity Funds as a whole accounted for roughly $82.9 billion of that as U.S. diversified products posted redemptions of over $70 billion alone. Taxable bond funds were not immune to the sell-off as inflows to the group were nearly flat--a meager $162 million. Investors moved away from higher yields as the previous quarter’s top flows attractor, Loan Participation funds, experienced outflows of $8.2 billion and High Current Yield products lost roughly $3.0 billion. Municipal bond funds offered a bit of a bright spot with quarterly inflows of $1.5 billion as flows for money market funds continued to be volatile with net quarterly redemptions of $43.8 billion.

Lipper 2011 Second Quarter Fund Flows Review WebEx Replay

Published on 29 Jun 2011, by Matthew Lemieux
Matthew Lemieux reviews preliminary mutual fund flow numbers for the second quarter 2011 in this WebEx replay. In spite of economic concerns and a weakening in global markets, mutual funds were able to post quarterly net inflows of roughly $13 billion as of June 22nd. Equity Funds as a whole were able to draw in $20.3 billion as the group was bolstered by growing interest in World Equity (+$14.0 billion) offerings. A growing aversion to risk helped Taxable Bond funds continue on their winning ways as they recorded $43.2 billion in new assets. For the second quarter in a row, Loan Participation Funds (+$8.2 billion) and Multi-Sector Income Funds (+$6.9 billion) had the largest inflows for the group. Municipal Bond Funds looked to end the quarter with outflows of $4.6 billion--not all that surprising as the group just recently ended a 29 week outflow streak. That said, there seems to be some light at the end of that tunnel as municipal funds have seen twelve consecutive weeks of positive returns and two weeks of scant, but positive flows. Money Market Funds have continued to shed assets with $36.1 billion in outflows.

The flight to quality trade looks to send Treasury-related categories to the top of the performance charts in Q2. Municipals debt funds--despite dire predictions for municipalities by certain analysts--have performed exceptionally well as the pipeline for new bond issuance dried up. Record-level issuance of high yield corporate debt during the quarter appears to have come to a screeching halt and High Yield Debt Funds turned in some of the fixed income world’s worst returns. Jeff highlights these and other trends in his WebEx presentation.

Lipper 2011 First Quarter Fund Flows Review WebEx Replay

Published on 12 Apr 2011, by Matthew Lemieux
Investors trained their focus on equity mutual funds as the group ended the quarter with net inflows of $57 billion. This was quite a turnaround from the $12.1 billion in outflows posted the previous quarter. Taxable fixed income also faired well by adding $36.2 billion to its coffers, bolstered by heavy interest in both Loan Participation Funds (+$14.4 billion) and Multi Sector Income Funds (+$8.1 billion). The prospects for municipal debt funds were similar to that of their previous quarter with approximately $20.4 billion flowing out of their products. Money market funds also ended the quarter with net outflows as the loss of $88.1 billion dragged overall numbers for the conventional fund business into the red.
