Professor George Alexandridis, Head of Pre-Experience Postgraduate Programmes, said:
“We are very glad to see our finance programmes at the ICMA Centre climbing further to the top five in the UK in this prestigious ranking. This reflects the hard work we have put in to Henley’s suite of Masters programmes aiming to provide a top class student experience, with a strong focus on a practice-oriented curriculum as well as the careers development and aspirations of our students who remain our most important stakeholders.”

A Free Lunch?
Fidelity, the asset manager with $2.4 trillion assets under management, recently announced the launch of two index mutual funds with a 0% fee! This announcement is interesting for several reasons. First, the asset management industry has been involved in an intense price war and this new fee level of 0% represents a very tough benchmark for the competition to beat. Not surprisingly, the share price of rival asset managers fell by a few percentage points shortly after the announcement. Second, the new fee level is unusual as it indicates that, for the first time, investors could get exposure to both US and international equities without incurring any fee. This is a curious business decision. How will Fidelity manage to pay for all its expenses? Will this product be a loss-making venture? Is there more to it than meets the eyes?
