https://sensibleinvesting.tv In this video blog, Weston Wellington from Dimensional Fund Advisors explains how study after study has shown there are no asset classes in which an active fund manager's skill can add significant value. The main problem, he says, is there are simply far too many active managers competing with one another. Transcript: Hello again.

As passive funds start to out-perform the majority of their active peers, the managers who think they make a genuine difference are starting to fight back! When I interviewed Hargreaves Lansdown’s head of research Mark Dampier recently, he candidly admitted that ninety per cent of actively managed funds are rubbish. Perhaps the best indicator of all is Hargreaves Lansdowns Wealth One Fifty, the best funds chosen from the three thousand or so available to UK investors. As of today, they can only find ninety six funds to put in the Wealth one fifty. But he also made an important point. He said that passive...
(www.abndigital.com) So which is best: Pay an active manager and get the best of their fundamental views over time or try and approximate the markets return by going passive. The answer to this maybe has less to do with the actual style of asset management.

http://sensibleinvesting.tv -- the independent voice of passive investing There are a handful of fund managers who have beaten the market in volatile times, but as BRWM's Richard Wood explains, they are extremely hard to identify and do not generally run retail funds.

In this episode of Common Sense Investing, I will tell you why your active manager is not able to protect your downside. An active money manager might tell you that they are able to act defensively to protect your investments during a down market. While the thought of letting your portfolio fall with the market is unpleasant, there is no evidence of the ability of active managers to consistently offer protection from bad markets. My name is Ben Felix of PWL Capital and this is Common Sense Investing. I’ll be talking about a lot more common sense investing topics in this series, so subscribe and click the bell for updates.

The rise of passive investing has changed the asset management industry profoundly, but Doug Eu says that does not make portfolio management irrelevant. To the contrary: Active asset managers can thoughtfully apply their skills towards finding solutions to clients' biggest challenges.
As the exchange traded fund industry enjoys greater and greater success, more traditional fund companies are eyeing the ETF space. For example, Natixis Investment Managers recently launched the actively managed Natixis Loomis Sayles Short Duration Income ETF (NYSArca: LSST) and also offers the Natixis Seeyond International Minimum Volatility ETF (NYSEArca: MVIN), which came out in October. "We wanted to come into the U.S. marketplace with an ETF that was really true to Natixis' DNA," Alex G. Piré, Head of Client Portfolio Management for Natixis, said at the Charles Schwab Impact Conference. "We're all about active management, active thinking."

At MoneyShow San Francisco, Michael Khouw previews the future of financial tech for options investing that could outdo the world's top active managers. "People will not adopt this technology unless it outperforms even the best active managers. We're at about 95% right now. We have a deal with UBS, one of the largest private banks in the world. We expect to be collaborating with a lot of the top 10 banks as calculation agents. We have proprietary technology. We think partnering is the way to go." He's a co-founder of The Options Edge.
Index funds have had a nice run since 2008, but actively managed funds will soon have their revenge, said Richard Yasenchak, Client Portfolio Manager for INTECH. Yasenchak added that passive investing has actually been proven to be an inefficient means of deploying capital because it favors mega-cap, overvalued stocks, while active investing has the ability to rebalance as needed. He also said that passive investing is not truly passive because investors and managers are actively wagering that active management is going to remain out of favor. Furthermore, Yasenchak said INTECH's research has shown that active beats passive in modestly rising markets and down markets and tends to underperform in sharply rising markets.
