Asset managers collect fees, from investors, which are dependent on the future performance of the investments they manage, and therefore stochastic. A new type of business is developing where the managers offer the investors certain forms of loss protection. In this talk we will review some of them, and will propose a cost/benefit analysis using the Black-Scholes option pricing framework, which will show that in some situations, the manager can actually end up paying the investor.
