The main problem, he says, is there are simply far too many active managers competing with one another. Transcript: Hello again. If you’re a regular viewer of Sensible Investing, you’ll know we don’t recommend using actively managed funds. Some say we overstate our case, that we somehow have it in for active managers. In fact neither of those is true. In a recent interview he gave us, Weston Wellington from Dimensional Fund Advisors explained how there’s no contradiction in having the utmost respect for active managers, while at the same time advising clients to avoid them. Weston Wellington says: “It is very, very difficult to distinguish luck from skill. I’ll put another way, it’s very easy to persuade ourselves that we can identify great performing stocks or great performing money managers. If it were the case that it were so easy to identity terrific money managers we ought to be able to do it. But in study after study after study we just don’t find that evidence. I think we ought to emphasise when we are making these statements, this is not a suggestion that active money managers are someway incompetent or greedy or they are looking at the wrong things. If anything, it’s a vote of confidence, saying there were so many talented clever, hardworking money mangers out there, all flipping through the thousands pages of corporate reports and information, all that competition serves to drive prices quickly enough to their fair value that it eliminates the easy opportunities for anybody, smart or otherwise to gain an advantage.” We often hear that some markets are less efficient than others, that there are particular asset classes in which a fund manager’s expertise really can add value. So what does Weston Wellington make of that? “I would never argue that there are no situations where clever active management might be able to add some value. I just haven't found an asset class yet. When I hear that argument that seems to apply. The ones we hear most often are small company stocks that are somehow less well researched and therefore they have greater opportunity for active managers, or emerging markets. Now right away you run into two big problems. Number one, you still have a market place that consists of all the small cap securities or all the emerging market securities and you have the universe of investors holding theses securities. You still have the zero sum game problem. And from an empirical standpoint, when we go looking for evidence among actively managed emerging market or actively managed small company strategies we find no evidence what so ever that these managers have any greater ability in this market place. If anything, the data shows that they’re performing even worse.” Ultimately, of course, we need active fund managers to set prices. But that certainly doesn’t mean that every investor needs to use them. Weston Wellington says: “To the extent active money managers study companies, access whether projects are useful or not useful, reflect those assessments in security prices, they’re performing a social benefit. The real question is, how many active managers do we need to keep markets efficient to keep prices fair? All the evidence we have from these academic studies of manager performance suggests we have way more mangers than we need to keep the markets efficient.” That’s about all for now.

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 and tracker funds have not universally performed well, in other words there are trackers and trackers. But he also said that the best fund managers substantially out-perform the passive funds and more than make up for the extra fees they charge. The dilemma for us investors is how do we recognise the star fund managers from the mediocre majority? Where do we look for them? Does their voice sound different? Do they look taller than the rest? I’m here to bring you some good news. We’re about to get a little help. The smart ones are going to start displaying called the ‘AS’. It stands for Active Share and its expressed as a percentage. What it means is that proportion of the fund’s portfolio that is made up of actively chosen shares, bonds or other asset classes. Specifically, it measures how much the fund differs from the benchmark against which its performance is measured. So, for example, if you measure yourself against the FTSE 100 and own every share in the index, you’re a closet tracker fund. Asking investors to pay four or five times the fees of an Exchange Traded Fund doing exactly the same thing is unlikely to make you flavour of the month. Mind you, that’s what some of the big name fund managers have been getting away with for years, including the high street banks, Scottish widows and the like. Now, some of the best managers in the market like the legendary Neil Woodford are differentiating themselves by publishing their Active Share score. Neptune, Baillie Gifford and Threadneedle are following suit, making it easier for us to assess how hard they are working on our behalf. The best managers will probably show an AS in the seventy per cent plus range, though in and of itself its not a perfect measure. Firstly, we need to know if the benchmark is the most appropriate for what we are trying to achieve. If you’re looking for a small cap fund and the benchmark chosen is the S&P five hundred you may not be in the right fund. And if the AS score is high it just means the manager is going way off beam of the index. He could be making inspired decisions or terrible ones. Only time and bottom line results will tell. But it feels to me like a sacred cow has been slain. It seems inevitable that we’ll see consolidation in the fund management sector as the closet trackers lose all their business to ETFs. The fact that a major player like Neil Woodford has risen to the challenge means that any other manager worth his salt must do the same. This can only be good for investors willing to pay higher fees for more inspired performance. If you’re invested in funds charging high fees with no visibility of their active share, be very careful out there!
