Active vs. Passive Investing — Who’s Right?
Over the past several years, investor sentiment has shifted from active stock picking to passive indexing. Should you do the same for your portfolio? The answer is more complicated than you might think.
Both active and passive investing are subject to cyclical performance. And to make things more confusing, some “active” managers stick so closely to their benchmark indices that they can be considered effectively passive. Truly active management, however, has shown itself to be more resilient in a down market. Now that equities are in the sixth year of a bull market with a correction looming, is now the time for active managers to shine?
This webinar discusses how you can take advantage of active management to help boost your portfolio’s returns. Ziegler Capital Management’s Christian Greiner, CFA® takes a look at:
- How active management works during a correction
- Why the trend has moved toward passive strategies
- Ways to position your investments to beat benchmarks over the long term
