Investor’s Attention Shifts to Passive in European Equities

Very disappointing results of active European equity fund managers in 2016 may have caused an acceleration of the shift into passive solutions, says www.fundinfo.com.

Active European equity managers got wrong-footed on sector allocation in 2016, adds the website. As ifund revealed this week, only 8% of European equity managers outperformed the MSCI Europe NR net of retail fees and just 24% did so gross of fees.

This may have caused an acceleration of the shift into passive solutions: while one year ago active European equity funds accounted for about 75% of all document views this number has most recently collapsed to 54%. This shift was most pronounced within public channels for German investors but was also remarkable for Swiss, Italian and UK investorss.
