Every industry has its excesses. If you had to name one for the hedge fund industry what would it be?
Asked by John Hutter

Answer By Richard Wilson

Besides the total number of hedge fund managers possibly approaching excess, I would say base management fees run high. They are typically 2% of total funds managed and I think that should come down to 1 or 1.25% or hopefully 0. If you are out there to make money for your investors than take it to the next level and only charge for positive performance.
