In an era where investors and regulators are very focussed on cost, how can active management justify itself unless it is with superior outperformance? Can it justify itself by sticking to risk parameters, or would more investors be happy with lower-cost multi-asset portfolios that use a mixture of passive/index funds and a few active managers? This webinar, in conjunction with Allianz Global Investors, will feature 3 leading multi-asset/multi-managers debating the issues, in a 45 minute webinar, that will qualify for CPD.
