Know Your Fund Manager

The fund manager is the one calling the shots on your investment so it's important to know who they are.

Like any team, funds are only as good as the people behind them: the fund managers. Portfolio managers are the people who decide what to buy and what to sell, and when. Because the fund manager is the person who is most responsible for a fund's performance, knowing who's calling the shots and for how long is key to selecting the right funds.

Different Manager Structures
Before discussing further why managers are important, let's step back and examine the two ways in which funds can be managed.

First, there's the single-manager approach. In this setup, there's one person who takes primary responsibility for making the fund's investment decisions. The manager doesn't do all the research, trading and decision making without help from others, though; analysts will feed the manager plenty of stock ideas. The single manager is sole decision maker, not the sole idea generator.
