Any fund fiduciary needs to ensure that the right asset managers are chosen for an individual mandate or as part of an overall portfolio. In many cases value is diminished by an inappropriate selection or failure to change a selection in a timely manner. But, when done well, active management can add significant value to a portfolio.
