Original Research & Thought Leadership
Rigorous, data-driven research is the foundation for the Council’s efforts to balance the narrative on active and passive investment management. Since 2018, the Council has sponsored research, developed thought leadership and hosted educational events to serve as a resource for investors and policymakers seeking to learn more.
A diverse team of Council members representing different viewpoints, business models and investor types oversees our research process. Collectively, this team has produced a growing library of commentaries and insights on active management designed to help investors make informed decisions for investment planning and portfolio construction.
Highlighted here are seven substantial pieces of academic and original Council research followed by selected insights curated from leading investment firms and academics from across the industry debunking myths, exploring active management’s vital importance to the securities markets and examining the essential role of active management in ESG and sustainable investing.
