Wealth Manager believes that research needs to be carried out in a holistic manner, with a focus on both quantitative and qualitative information. Quantitative analysis provides us with an idea of how the fund manager has performed in different market conditions, whereas qualitative analysis (of a fund manager’s strengths and weaknesses) provides us with knowledge of how a fund manager is expected to behave.
