Chris Cuffe recently shared his views on the future of active management in this exclusive video with Livewire. Acknowledging the pressures on the industry, Chris makes the case that there will always be a role for good active managers that can generate real alpha over the long-term.   


"Good active management is here to stay. Someone has to allocate capital efficiency and index funds don’t achieve that."


Key points:

  • Good active management in niche areas will continue to do well.
  • Have to judge managers over the long-term.
  • Industry is cyclical, and there is always focus on fees when returns are lower.
  • Outperformance should be appropriately rewarded with good fees.
