Sensational journalism

I spoke at Fund Forum in Monaco two weeks ago, and having spent last week catching up, I was looking forward to writing a more detailed review of my presentation and the report on which it was based today. However, my plans were thwarted by an FT article that — at best — took some lines out of context and at worst, inaccurately reported parts of the report. How they got their hands on the report is also questionable since it wasn’t circulated to the press and the FT didn’t buy it.

The report is a lot more than a few lines of inaccurate and sensational reporting. Deconstructing the UK funds of funds world is an in-depth review of the UK funds of funds industry in which we review everything from the major players through to the underlying funds and sectors in the asset class. We uncovered some interesting trends and my Fund Forum presentation highlighted some of the key findings. You can view it here.
