Title

The Death of Active Management?

Event Description

​The investing world is changing. The proportion of investable capital allocated to active strategies has declined from 60% of assets under management to less than 40% today. Meanwhile, the remarkable rise of the exchange-traded fund (ETF) market and “alternative indexing” strategies suggest that, for a large number of investors, the search for alpha is not worth the price, at least in the current market environment. 


In a world of easy indexing and “robo” asset allocators, what is the value proposition of investment professionals? What impact will the increasing consumption of retirement assets have on an already fast-changing industry? 

Join us in a lively presentation by Prof. Russ Wermers of the Smith School of Business as he shares with us his latest research into the critical questions: 

  • Does active management add value?
  • Can we identify superior active managers (SAMs) on an ex ante basis?
  • What are the best quantitative tools for assessing active managers?
