Each Adviser will have the ongoing problem of managing the time to allocate cash to his chosen Asset manager or Fund and justifying why. In this respect looking at historic performance is of limited help when trying to understand the current drivers. Even with a choice of Manager, there are so many varaibles to consider such as their changing focus known as “Style Drift”,or reliance of specific staff “key-man risks”.
RDR changes will place gretaer responsibility on the Adviser, not only in the regular Risk profiling but also in the subsequent process of ensuring and effective asset allocation, for on going montoring of Fund performance. Being able to respond to changes in markets and conveying those changes to Clients will be key during his regular Review processes.
