Active and Passive: Prospects for 2021 and Beyond

Event Description

2020 was a year of notable volatility, which may well continue into the new year.   Even if the worst shocks to the market are behind us, how might volatility impact active and passive strategies in the year ahead?
Join us as Craig Lazzara, CFA from S&P Dow Jones Indices discusses the history of the active-passive debate, the preliminary scorecard for 2020, and what index analysis can teach us about active management.
