At M&G, we passionately believe in the power of active investing.
You might have read about the so-called “active versus passive” debate in the financial pages. In our view, this is something of a false dichotomy – both types of investment strategy can play a role in a well-balanced portfolio.
First things first, here’s the distinction:
Active investors will follow their own convictions and make investment decisions on a case-by-case basis in pursuit of specific investment goals.
Passive investors, in contrast, look to mirror the performance of a particular market benchmark, like the FTSE 100 Index of UK-listed companies.
