I am not a great fan of the fund-management industry.
I cannot think of another sector where the employees collect enormous salaries while the customers pay hefty fees and sometimes get nothing in return.
Quite often us amateur investors are better off with simple index trackers rather than falling for the industry’s persuasive advisers and glossy brochures.
Yet here I am about to study Polar Capital — a fund manager that might actually exhibit ‘pandemic proof’ qualities given its investment bias towards technology and healthcare.
