Due Diligence Forum summary

The core philosophy of fund-of-fund investing is to generate absolute returns with low correlation to traditional asset classes. While promoting investment utopia to advisers, fund-of-funds remain in the spotlight for their perceived correlation with major equity markets and performance during periods of market stress.

This presentation and underlying research paper analyses the time-varying nature of correlations between fund-of-funds and traditional asset classes with a specific focus on analysing performance during crisis periods. They develop an intuitive framework to analyse fund-of-fund returns and measure what are genuine skill-based returns versus expensive beta.
