The ongoing debate around active and passive investment management

Passive seems to be winning.

When one drills into why this is the case, it becomes clear that beating the passives is actually doable. So why is it that active managers have disappointed? Why has the transition from actives to passives been so dramatic over the last few years? What are the learnings? What are the benefits of passive management versus active management? Is it not possible to combine the best of both worlds? Is there a strategy with which one can beat the passives consistently going forward?

In this webinar, Bastian Teichgreeber from Prescient Investment Management answers these and other questions. He also discusses the strategy that Prescient has adopted to achieve the desired investment outcome.
