A complimentary webinar for financial advisors and investment professionals
Equity markets around the world have continued their rebound after the sharp drawdown in 2020. The S&P/ASX 200 has followed suit, posting a gain of 27.8% over the 12 months ending June 2021.
Did the volatility of this uncertain period give active funds a better shot at outperforming their benchmarks? And how have Australian active funds stacked up to their benchmarks over longer periods?
Priscilla Luk, author of S&P DJI's S&P Indices vs. Active (SPIVA®) Scorecard and Christian Beltrame, Director of RCB Advisors, will help answer these questions and discuss:
- How Australian active funds have fared against their comparable benchmark indices over short- and long-term horizons
- Whether the effectiveness of indexing differs in bull and bear markets
- How advisors are using SPIVA research to inform portfolio allocation recommendations
