ABSTRACT
The article reports on the performance of the Adviser Fund Index (AFI) during the rebalancing carried out in May 2009. AFI has recorded a decline in funds to 147 from 169 on its three portfolios, including Aggressive, Balanced and Cautious. It reveals that the resignation of investment advisors from mutual fund companies during the reccesion has contributed to the downfall of companies enlisting their funds in the AFI.
