    I have been noticing that there are a fair few people on these forums invested in CFS funds. I was just wondering why they are so popular?

    CFS are one of the largest fund managers in Australia and have a large portfolio of funds to choose from. They also act as a pseudo-platform by reselling other fund manager funds and by creating multi-manager funds (where you give your money to CFS, they split it between several other fund managers and get them to invest it).

    CFS have a nice web based interface for transacting on your account (or just tracking it if you use a margin lender).

    That's not to say that other fund managers aren't any good!
