The priority of any fund manager is to generate returns for investors. But day-to-day fund administration, accounting and compliance can easily become a hindrance to the real work. And strict punishment for late filing only adds to the pressure you'll be feeling as a manager to keep investors happy. You want them to have complete confidence – not just in their fund’s administration, but in its financial reporting too.
Managing complex and diversified portfolios of funds and managed accounts requires attention to transparency and increasingly diligent reporting. But that tends to take away from the preferred focus on analysing and selecting funds, with time spent taking care of administration and laborious reports.
