Morningstar Advisor - August/September 2012 - (Page 23)

Investment Briefs How These Manager Changes Affect Investors Each month in the Morningstar FundInvestor newsletter, Russel Kinnel, Morningstar’s director of mutual fund research, reviews the latest manager changes and whether they were “positive,” “negative,” or “neutral” for the fund in question. Here is his take on some of the biggest manager changes of 2012 so far. He also lists each fund’s Morningstar Analyst Rating in light of the changes. Ariel Appreciation CAAPX Change: Comanager Matt Sauer left March 23 to join a former Oak Value colleague at Lateef. Comanagers John Rogers and Tim Fidler will remain, and there are no plans to add a third portfolio manager. Impact: Negative Analyst Rating: Bronze Russ’ Take: This is a blow but not a disaster. Still, Sauer seemed likely to become lead manager as Rogers had stepped in when the previous comanager left. Fidler was named a comanager in November 2009, so we don’t have much of a track record on him. BlackRock Energy & Resources SSGRX Change: Manager Dan Rice III left June 22 after The Wall Street Journal reported that his family had a large sum of money invested in a family-run energy partnership that had business deals with a company in the fund’s portfolio. BlackRock said it knew of the partnership and potential conflicts of interest and did not have a problem with it. Nevertheless, Rice resigned. Impact: Negative Analyst rating: Neutral Russ’ Take: We lowered our Analyst Rating to Neutral, as Rice’s departure is a blow. I’m also scratching my head over why BlackRock’s compliance department was OK with this. It’s certainly a blow to lose Rice, but comanager Denis Walsh III remains. Fidelity Overseas FOSFX Change: Vincent Montemaggiore replaced Ian Cerulli Says: Taking the Reins of Discretion The fee-based managed accounts segment is experiencing rapid growth in discretionary advisory programs. Discretionary programs grew by 53.6% during the past two years, compared with their nondiscretionary counterparts growing 32.6% over the period. Given the expectation of continued volatility in the markets, Cerulli expects to see further growth of the market share of discretionary programs. The fee-based managed-accounts segment is experiencing rapid growth in discretionary advisory programs, in both advisor-driven and home-office driven programs. Discretionary programs grew by 54% during the past two years, compared to their nondiscretionary counterparts growing by 28% over the period. While there are many factors driving advisors to use these programs, the main reason is the scalability of these programs compared with nondiscretionary programs, where the client needs to give their consent on any manager changes or asset-allocation shifts. Given the expectation of continued volatility in the markets, Cerulli expects to see further growth of the market share of discretionary programs.

Montemaggiore produced decent results at Fidelity Select Banking FSRBX and had run Fidelity Select Industrial Equipment FSCGX. Impact: Negative Analyst Rating: Negative Russ’ Take: Montemaggiore seems to be coming in cold on this assignment, as running a couple of U.S. sector funds doesn’t seem to provide sufficient experience to run a diversified foreign fund. We rate the fund Negative, but we’ll keep a close eye on the fund to see how Montemaggiore fares. Fidelity Value Discovery FVDFX Change: Scott Offen stepped down from this fund on Jan. 10 in order to focus on his new charge, Fidelity Equity Dividend Income FEQTX.
