Active and passive investment management have a symbiotic relationship. Market volatility and the increasing complexities of a global economy create interdependent opportunities and challenges for the two edges of investment philosophy. Success comes from appropriately balancing the two. During this session, panelists will consider these questions:

  • How are asset managers and institutional investors striking the right balance?
  • From abandoning traditional benchmarks to delivering customized asset allocations, how and where active and passive will fit in the portfolios of the future?
