Assume that you are evaluating a manager for investment. Assume that the manager invests in an asset class you wish to gain exposure to. Assume that they meet your requirements such as service providers (prime broker, accountant, legal), that they have the requisite amount of staff (CFO, compliance, number of analysts), that they have sufficient assets under management and have fees and liquidity provisions which are acceptable to you.
Assuming that all of those criteria are acceptable, and holding all else equal, we are curious as to the importance you put on different personality traits and other attributes when selecting a manager. In each section, you will be asked how important you feel different attributes are and then asked to force rank your top 2 to 3 attributes in each category.
We thank you again for your participation.
