INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Sub-Advised Fund'

Sub-advised funds are often smaller versions of larger mutual funds and hold the same stock proportions as the larger mutual fund. Because there are two management companies being paid, sub-advised funds can often have layered fees, so these funds should be examined closely before deciding to invest.
