We believe investors can reimagine getting “active” with their investments in multiple ways, beyond traditional notions of alpha.
There is no doubt that traditional active investing has had to contend with a number of challenges in recent years. These trends have increased pressure on active managers to demonstrate their comparative advantage and have contributed to substantial flows of institutional assets to passive strategies.
Ultimately, amid the new investment reality of a relatively muted return environment, we believe investors need to consider thoughtful combinations of both active and passive exposures in order to achieve their long-term investment objectives. The potential for investors to get active, add value and seek outperformance exists across multiple dimensions of the investment life cycle.
