Stingy News Article Link: "Stewardship common sense"
"In the course of our research we've uncovered a fund company - one that received a good culture grade and had no regulatory deductions - that purchased shares in a related company in one of its funds. Since the firm has followed all of the rules, technically, it's not considered a regulatory issue. Accordingly, the trade was not reviewed by the IRC. But when we discovered all of the facts, we have zero doubt that a conflict of interest existed, whether or not the law defines it as such." "This month Sequoia Fund marks its 40th anniversary.

Group behind recent Haslam attack has powerful Tennessee ...
When a shadowy group from Iowa called the “American Future Fund” began running an ad attacking Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam and his family’s company, Pilot Oil, less than 24 hours after the final gubernatorial candidates debate last week, the timing and message were curious. The content of the ad was “fair game,” as is said in politics. Portions of the group’s charges about claims of Pilot’s 2008 price-gouging in the wake of Hurricane Ike were exaggerated somewhat, but they were nothing that would have warranted investigation if the ad had run in the general election of a governor’s ... market research, surveys and trends

Google Answers: How widespread was mutual fund market timing prior ...
I am researching historical practices of mutual fund market timing for the period prior to September 2003. This is an investment approach that involves rapidly switching funds between an equity mutual fund and a money market mutual fund. Since September of 2003 there has been an industry wide crack down on the practice of mutual fund market timing and a number of mutual funds have paid large settlements to the SEC to settle charges that they allowed market timing that was not in the best interest of mutual fund shareholders. The particular angle that I am researching is the extent to which mutual fund market timing was an ...
Are discretionary fund managers (DFMs) the answer to a financial ...
Active fund management in general is a zero sum game so it follows that both multi manager and discretionary fund management is unlikely to add anything for the end clients. The only use I can see for it (and one which I have benn considering) is to ease the administration of simple passive asset allocation portfolios. An adviser with discretionary powers would be able to switch between two index trackers with the same mandate where one offers a significant reductioon in fees without the need to get individual client approval. Equally, if a portfolio is agreed as requiring (say) 50% cash and 50% UK Equity discretionary powers ...
