'Robo Active': tracking the world’s top fund managers
Citywire's second 'Smart Alpha' special report reveals one way to build portfolios that track the world's top fund managers.
Around the world active fund managers are under pressure from the rise of passive investing. 'Tracker' funds offer lower costs and the apparent simplicity of not having to choose a manager - just the market will do!
Yet a varying proportion of active managers often beat their benchmark index, so we wondered: is it possible to devise a system that automates the manager selection process? Can you create an outperforming portfolio by tracking top fund managers in a sector?
In the second of our 'Smart Alpha' special reports Citywire reveals how its 'Robo Active' process worked and which sectors it succeeded in and also where it struggled.
Just as a heads up I can say the results look particularly good in the UK!
