Boutique tapes: if you want a Ferrari, you have to pay for it

How tough has it become for active managers? 

This is the question put to boutique bosses in the second episode of our four-part series. 

As the regulatory pressure mounts, just how can active fund managers justify their fees? 

The boutique bosses argue you get what you pay for. But what, if any, are the unintended consequences of so much regulatory attention on costs. 

This was recorded at Citywire’s London headquarters as part of series of discussions on the state of the industry. The event was co-chaired by Citywire executive chair Lawrence Lever and Wealth Manager online editor Dylan Lobo.

It also features:

Rob Harris, chief executive officer, Majedie Asset Management

Charles Montanaro, chairman, Montanaro Asset Management

Gavin Rochussen, chief executive officer, Polar Capital

Ed Rosengarten, head of funds, Smith & Williamson
