Active Investing In the News

The introduction of enhanced features to ActiveShare.info, an online resource for helping evaluate characteristics historically associated with actively managed mutual funds, was recently reported by RIA Intel. Observations shared by the investment industry publication in a Sept. 15, 2020 article included:

  • “New features have been added to a free website that helps financial advisors identify which mutual funds are sticking to their strategies and justify their expenses.”
  • “It can’t do all the work of manager selection, but ActiveShare.info enables anyone to search and compare actively managed mutual funds … with several factors and filters, including Active Share.”
  • “… the latest enhancements to the website help advisors go beyond answering whether a fund is truly active or not, or finding the so-called closet indexers. …. Users can now filter funds based on other criteria, such as the market cap a fund focuses on, investing style and conviction.”
  • “Active Share and other filters might seem like obvious screens for selecting managers but they are still underutilized by advisors.”
