The many uncertainties that accompany EM sometimes mean active investing can seem more attractive than passive investing. At the same time, the deteriorating ability of money managers to beat their indices has led investors to accelerate a shift towards passive strategies, such as ETFs. This adds to the pressure on actively managed funds to justify their fees. Do current market conditions provide a solid opportunity for active managers to demonstrate their value or do passive managers still have the long-term advantage? In this panel, our speakers will explore.
- Have passive investments won the race for assets and returns?
- Why have active managers predominantly underperformed in the past and what are the indicators that this trend is set to reverse?
- Are current market conditions providing a backdrop for active managers to demonstrate their true value or do passive managers still offer the best source of returns?
- Is the period of outperformance of passive funds vs. active funds set to change with more opportunities coming for active managers around rising rates?
