The place for passives

A poll conducted amongst fund selectors during the recent Citywire Virtual South Africa event found that over 80% see index-tracking solutions as a source of diversification in their portfolios.

This overwhelming response showed how conscious the local industry has become of the benefits in passive investing.

‘At big inflection points, active can play a big part. But in a trending market, passive is a fantastic way to capture beta, to capture broad growth,’ said Victoria Reuvers, MD of Morningstar Investment Management South Africa.

In this short video, Lebo Thubisi, head of manager research at Alexander Forbes Investments, and Reuvers speak about how they use passive solutions in their portfolios, and whether that includes a role for smart beta.
