Third-Party Managers (Tactical vs. Strategic)

Your article was successfully shared with the contacts you provided.

Now that 2008 is about to be safely behind us and we have had 2009 to recover — and, who knows for sure, but 2010 is looking like it could be okay, yes? — I’m wondering what you think about third-party managers.

We’ve discussed tactical (float like a butterfly, sting like a bee; in other words, be flexible and responsive to investment conditions) vs. strategic (diversify proportionately so that all risks are considered and non-correlation is paramount; in other words, get the right percentage of each thing tucked into a portfolio). Well, what about doing some strategic portfolios of your own and surrounding it with tactical managers? Or what about surrounding a strategic third-party manager with other, tactical, third-party managers?
