Alarming trend with Fund Managers

Adam Dawes

Shaw and Partners

We are seeing an alarming trend of changing/lowering fee structures within Platinum Asset Management Limited (PTM) and now today K2 Asset Management Holdings Ltd (KAM).  I think that this will continue in the industry as Managed Funds continue to fight against lower cost options e.g. ETF’s for investors.  While reducing both management fees and performance fees is good for clients it is not good for the business.  Keep a close eye on Magellan (MFG) and BT Investment Management Limited (BTT) or other listed fund providers for changes to their fee structures in the future.
