Kimberly Flynn, Managing Director-Alternative Investments contributed to Tom Stabile’s article.

“It makes sense that both hedge fund and private equity managers would try to find ways to reduce the cost to the end investor,” she says. “In alternatives, fees are not noise. You should really be thinking about the net-of fees, net-of expenses cost to clients.” In addition to lower fees she also asserts that manager quality also drives investment decisions.
