Active Isn't Dead: The Case for Refining Your Clients' Portfolios

webcast 2017-05-23

There is a myth that active investment managers cannot outperform their benchmarks. But the death of active investing has been greatly exaggerated.

The economic climate in the past eight years has generally been conducive for U.S. market-cap weighted passive strategies. But if you look at all 28 of the asset class categories Morningstar tracks, the majority of active managers in 14 of those categories beat their indices over that time period.

Date: Tuesday, May 23, 2017

Time: 4-5 PM ET

In this live, interactive webcast InvestmentNews and OppenheimerFunds will debunk some common investment myths and misconceptions. Advisers will learn:

  1. The outperformance of U.S. large cap passive strategies may have been driven by the highly unique economic climate of the past eight years.
  2. Far from being dead, active management still has a compelling long-term story.
  3. Taking a close look under the hood of any ETF under consideration is essential.
  4. For U.S. investors who have had a home bias, there are international sectors they may no longer be able to afford to ignore.

Attendees may submit questions before and during the live event. This free session could prove to be an invaluable resource for you in ways that could deliver direct benefits for your clients and prospects.
