Investment managers

It’s important to know who is managing your money.

Investment managers carry out each mutual fund’s unique investment strategy and manage the trading of the fund’s assets on behalf of investors.

Investment managers must have the right education, professional credentials and investment management experience. They’re paid a percentage of the fund’s average assets under management.

To determine suitability for investors, Quadrus Group of Funds investment managers are regularly reviewed and monitored for:

  • Corporate structure
  • Compliance processes
  • Investment style and risk
  • Investment performance
