Active Management – Florida Investment Advisor and Broker – Dealer Investment FINRA Arbitration and Litigation Attorney:

What is “active” investment management?  The purpose of this post is to provide the reader with general educational information relative to this concept.  Please keep in mind that this post is not designed to be complete in all material respects.  Thus, it should not be relied upon as legal or investment advice.  If the reader has any questions concerning this post, you should contact a qualified professional.

Active management refers to an investment style where a portfolio manager actively makes investment decisions and initiates buying and selling of securities in an effort to maximize returns.  It is the opposite of passive management, where the money manager oversees a fixed portfolio structured to match the performance of the overall market or a preselected part of it, a strategy called indexing.

The terms active and passive management apply at the level of portfolio management.  The operative concept is management, which implies professional management.

If your assets are being actively or passively managed and you have any questions concerning performance results, it is suggested that you contact a qualified professional to answer any questions that you may have relative thereto.
