The future of active and passive management

The past decade has seen massive outflows from actively managed funds to passive vehicles. A high-level dialogue hosted by Funds Europe, in association with RBC Investor & Treasury Services, asked experts for their take on the way ahead.

From a stance of mutual antagonism, the passive-versus-active debate is moving towards one of cooperation so that in future, both types of investing may well coexist in the same ecosystem to the benefit of clients.

Our panellists explored how best to combine the two approaches; where one works better than the other; what kind of role smart beta has to play; and which passive vehicles are likely to succeed.
