Active Management - Milford Asset

Not all managed funds are equal

Research results consistently identify sets of active fund managers that deliver above-average results. Based on findings from a series of market reviews (see footnote examples) this checklist sets out the characteristics of high performing teams simply, enabling you to review your options and create a clear record of assessments.

Why are some active fund managers better than others?

Delivering above-market returns can be difficult to achieve. This difficulty is a reflection of how tough it is to consistently beat the market. It requires a mix of capability, resources and experience to deliver. Given actively managed funds typically have higher fees than passively managed funds, you want to be sure you’re choosing a team that has proof of performance across cycles.
