How do you spot whether a pension fund manager is good or bad, is steady and reliable or is gambling with your retirement pot?
By looking underneath the bonnet of your pensions funds.
The key here is understanding the factors known as the ‘metrics’, crucial figures and numbers which give valuable clues as to how a fund achieves its performance.
If you know these metrics you can begin to decipher how a fund is really performing and see how it is positioned in terms of its management style and risk-taking. Know this and you may well spot warning signals in advance of something going wrong and unnecessary losses being occurred.
We have published research which goes into this in far more depth and will help you see these metrics, plus our research lists those fund management groups with strong metrics and those who have weak metrics, the ’good’ and ‘bad’.
