Sub-Advised Fund

A A A

DEFINITION

An atypical fund structure in which a fund, such as a hedge fund or mutual fund, is managed by another management team or firm than where the assets are held. Sub-advised funds are often found in wrap programs or variable annuities.

INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS

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.
