Active Versus Passive Without A Peace Dividend – FNArena

The world is changing yet again and three fund managers built a case around active investing as the logical strategy for investment outperformance.

-Three global investment managers presented the argument for active stock picking and the ability to outperform passive index investing over the long term
-Heightened challenges from climate change, decarbonisation and rising geo-political tensions support a more fragile environment for investors, and potentially lower than historical returns going forward
-Professor Bessembinder says empirical data analysis supports both active and passive investing, but all depends on you personally or your fund manager

Joint hosts Orbis, MFS and Baillie Gifford recently organised the Active Advantage 2023 conference in Sydney during which each presented on the long-term value of an active approach for investment portfolios.

Professor Hank Bessembinder from Arizona State University featured as Special Guest.

FNArena attended through author (and soon AusbizTV anchor) Danielle Ecuyer.
