Living Together: Active and Passive Strategies can Co-exist

24 January 2017

Competitors can make for great stories. Take Coke vs. Pepsi, Microsoft vs. Apple, McDonald’s vs. Burger King and now some would say, active vs. passive investing.

The media often turns this debate into an either/or battle. However, both strategies have their benefits and trade-offs.
