Asset managers need to beat benchmark performances
Active asset managers are challenged by low-cost passive investment products. Their clients expect higher returns after costs. Speculative bets and timing decisions rarely achieve a sustainable investment performance. The added value of active asset management needs to be demonstrated consistently.
Good asset managers select strong performance drivers and reduce management risk
Professional asset managers organize their investment process based on strong drivers of expected returns. They combine defensive and cyclical performance factors to diversify effectively. They invest with a style tilt that leverages performance factors such as size or value, i.e., factors that turned out to be robust over long time horizons, in multiple markets and that are grounded in evidence and finance theory.
