What are Fund of Funds?

In simple words, a Mutual Fund Investing its collected pool of money in another mutual fund (one or maybe more) is referred to as fund of funds. Investors in their portfolios take exposure to different funds and keep track of them separately. However, by Investing in multi-manager mutual funds this process gets more simplified as investors need to track only one fund, which in turn holds numerous mutual funds within it. Assume an individual has invested in 10 different funds having exposure in various financial assets like stocks, Bonds, government securities, gold, etc. However, he finds it difficult in managing those funds as he needs to keep a track of each fund separately. Therefore, to avoid such hassles, the investor invests money in a multi-management investment (or a single funds of funds strategy) which has its stakes in different Mutual Funds.

Advantages of Fund of Funds

Like every mutual fund, fund of funds also has numerous advantages. Some of them are:

1. Portfolio Diversification and Fund Allocation

One of the key primary benefits is portfolio diversification. Here, despite investing in one single fund, the investment is made in several mutual fund schemes, where the fund is allocated in an optimal manner with the aim to earn maximum returns at a given level of risk.

2. Gateway for Diversified Assets

Multi-management investment helps retail investors to get access to funds that are not easily available for investments. A single fund of fund can take exposure in turn to Equity Funds, Debt fund or even commodity based mutual funds. This ensures diversification for the retail investor by just getting into one Mutual fund.

3. Due Diligence Process

All the funds under this category are expected to follow a due diligence process conducted by the fund manager where they need to check the background and credentials of the underlying fund managers before making an investment to ensure the strategy is in-line with expectations.

4. Less Investment Amount

This is a good option for retail investors who wish to venture into this investment avenue with a lower ticket size.

How Does a Fund of Fund Works?

For understanding the modalities of how multi-manager investment functions, it is important to understand the concepts of fettered and unfettered management. Fettered management is a situation when the mutual fund invests its money in a portfolio containing assets and funds managed by its own company. In other words, the money is invested in the funds of the same asset management company. In contrast, unfettered management is a situation where the mutual fund invests in external funds managed by other Asset Management Companies. Unfettered funds have an advantage over fettered funds as they can exploit opportunities from numerous funds and other schemes instead of limiting themselves to the same family funds.

Why Choose Fund of Funds?

The following image gives clarity on how multi-management investment can help an individual instead of a simple mutual fund to achieve their objectives.

Though multi-management investment has a lot of benefits associated with it, one of the important factors that one needs to be aware of is the fee associated with it. Investors should be aware of any charges or expenses that a mutual fund will attract and make their investments accordingly. Therefore, in a nutshell, it can be concluded fund of funds is an ideal investment option for investors who seek to enjoy a hassle free investment in mutual funds.
