Downturn Protection Not a Reason to Go Active
Active funds did outperform during the recent sell-off, but that alone isn't reason to eschew passive strategies that have done well over the long haul.
Christine Benz: Hi, I'm Christine Benz for Morningstar.com. Did actively managed equity funds earn their keep during the recent market downturn? Joining me to share some research on that topic is Jeff Ptak. He is head of global manager research for Morningstar.
Jeff, thank you so much for being here.
