It’s all about the money…

In the wake of continued market volatility, the fear of the fiscal cliff, regulatory uncertainty and incredibly low yields; investors are asking how much more can they take.

The answer is a lot. The reason is because they have to. Over the last six months, we have been speaking with investors of all shapes and sizes and one theme that carries through all the conversations, regardless of the size of their portfolio, is they want to put money to work. 

And while there is significant consensus among investors about getting into the markets, there is clearly no consensus as to how to access the markets. 

Some investors, like large wheel heeled managers with significant assets under management, others are focused on emerging managers, while others don’t seem to know what they want only that they want something that will earn them a return.

However, returns, it seems, may be tough to come by. We searched the web and found few articles that illustrate just how hard it is to put up returns today:
