Hello everyone,

I'm curious about the differences between single managers and multi manager platforms, and would appreciate any general observations. I looked through some old threads and came across a few posts that seemed to imply that life can be more stressful at the multi managers since they tend to be more focused on the short term and have to operate under certain firm level limits.

Could anyone comment on any differences between the two regarding general investment time horizons, analyst responsibilities, hierarchy, team structure? I understand that it's hard to generalize funds, but appreciate any insight or if anyone could point me to any resources to learn more. Also, I'm interested in value-focused long/short equity (or long-only) with a longer time horizon, in case that changes anything.
