Ratings Radar Podcast: It’s the need for human contact edition

Ratings Radar Podcast: It’s the need for human contact edition

The queen of soul Aretha Franklin once asked ‘Who’s Zoomin’ Who’? The answer, as we’re finding out right now, is we’re all zoomin everybody.

But does this mean face to face meetings are dead for ever? 

If you’re a fund selector entrusting millions of your clients’ money to the manager of a complex alternative strategy, you’ll want to know if you can trust them. Doesn’t that mean a meeting in the flesh, getting to know them and seeing if their employers are splurging cash on expensive sculpture at the expense of proper research?

This week’s Citywire Ratings Radar Podcast explores this question in more depth – come for the number crunching and stay for the human insights.

Citywire’s Nisha Long also looks at how some Alt Ucits strategies have fared in the Covid-19 maelstrom and her colleague Frank Talbot throws the spotlight on a US boutique that’s been making waves.
