Road Rage or Autopilot: Active vs. Passive Investing Decisions

October 6: 4:00 pm5:30 pm

Loading Events

What determines whether active or passive investing will be more effective? Is it correlations of stocks within the S&P500? Is it an upward vs downward market? Is it the sub asset class you are investing in? Is it the number of CFA charter holders in existence? On Thursday October 6th we will investigate the implications of a tactical vs strategic approach to the decision of where to deploy an alpha budget vs where to take what the market gives you. There might even be a third option.
