An active investment approach

Home > Financial Focus

Active investing refers to the ongoing buying and selling activity by an investor or funds manager. Active investors purchase investments and continuously monitor their activity to exploit profitable conditions, or buying and selling opportunities.

When volatility increases, the flexibility of active investing can be especially rewarding compared to the rigid allocations of passive investments. In particular, volatility can introduce opportunities for bottom-up stock-pickers, especially during times of market uncertainty.

Remember that the stocks you do not own in a fund can be just as important as the ones you do own. There are companies in every stock market that are poorly managed, or which suffer from fundamentally difficult outlooks – a good active manager can avoid these stocks. The potential value added by avoiding some of the worst stocks in the market can build up over time, making a well researched active strategies particularly appealing for long-term investors.
