Do index funds really outperform fund managers?

Studies have shown that beating the market turns out to be even harder than we thought. As a result, the notion that investors are better off investing in market indexes instead of hiring fund managers to run their investment portfolios has gained much traction in recent years.

With fund managers charging higher fees than index funds, the returns for active investors can be lower. Smart Beta is a new investment strategy that aims to capture return drivers through transparent and rule-based methodologies to produce better diversification and risk-adjusted returns.

Learn more about these investment strategies and how they have affected investment trends in this master class by Dr Xu Peng, Associate Academic Director of ESSEC’s Master in Finance, which is ranked #1 in Asia and #5 worldwide by Financial Times 2018.
