Abstract: In this paper, we outline a distinctive approach that we utilise to the processes involved in the traditional value proposition of FoHFs - manager selection, portfolio construction and monitoring - and highlight the added flexibility and transparency benefits we obtain by choosing, where appropriate, to access managers via managed accounts.

Keywords: fund of hedge funds; FoHFs; portfolio management; portfolio construction; risk; managed accounts; alpha; manager selection; portfolio monitoring; flexibility; transparency.
