The article reports on the difficulty of Octopus Investments Ltd. to manage its multi-manager Omnis funds within their cost caps since irrational markets are to increment the need for active managers in Great Britain. It said that the cap was made through a core-and-satellite approach based on the theory that big parts of the returns are yielded by the market. It is stated that the higher costs of active managers who outperform the market can be satisfied within the cap as satellite holdings.
