Why Investors need to scrutinise all Fees

A Horrow Story of abusive fees-
  • Promised Services are not performed
  • Overpay for Average Returns or Underperformance
  • Management Fees based on inflated Asset Values
  • Valuation Methods changed opportunistically
  • Back-door Fees via non-independent Experts
  • Detrimental Allocation of Profits due to Outperformance
  • Performance Fees not calculated properly
  • Non-Business Expenses charged to fund
  • Transactions executed at false prices
If this is not enough to make you seek advice on portfolio monitoring you only have to blame yourself if the net returns you receive are disappointing.

Keep in mind that even the most prestigous Fund Managers or Private Banking names should not escape close supervision.
