The Oxford Club And Fund Managers February 2, 2018

They don’t see eye to eye, and that is being kind. There is advice from The Oxford Club being given about fund managers and the fee’s they charge investors. Just like any other industry, you will have the bad elements mixed in with the good. In the finance world though that balance is off-kilter.

There are way too many managers willing to charge fee’s that are more than what an investor should pay. That charge is one where the investor could have made money on an investment had it not been for the fee charged by the manager of said investment.

There is a lot to be said then for performing due diligence in learning what it is a fund manager does. You do not have to go to school for four years to learn this trade. Performing the right studies for a year or two would be necessary, but if you learn the formula’s, how the market works and which asset classes are equal to Blue Chip stocks, then you won’t have to pay those fee’s.

This is all about the investor making money, not a fund manager making money off of your potential profits, and then him or her saying that your class under-performed the speculations. If you can handle investments like mutual funds in a 401k, it is not too big of a leap to handle your stock market investments/trades.

Hats off to The Oxford Club for shining a light in that darkness. The world needs more savvy investors to help keep the market moving at a pace representative of the people playing it.
