Potential Advantages of Boutique Investment Firms Managing Mutual Fund Portfolios
“The best boutique firms reflect their managers’ passion for investing through a disciplined process grounded in quality research.”
The term “investment boutique” can describe a relatively wide range of asset management firms, but the general consensus is that investment boutiques are smaller, independently-operated firms that manage less than $10 billion in assets under management (AUM) with specialization or expertise in a particular segment or area of investing.
We believe the boutique model offers an attractive alternative to large firms and should be a factor investors examine when making investment decisions.
