Active vs Passive

In the ongoing debate over the merits of ‘Active’ vs ‘Passive’ investing, there’s a general perception that passive investing is somehow ‘safe’, and active management involves taking greater risk. Nothing could be further from the truth. We believe the greater your need for wealth preservation, the greater the percentage of your assets should be in active strategies.

Wealth Preservation

For someone in their 20s with an investment horizon of many decades, a passive ‘buy and hold’ approach in low-cost index ETFs is an excellent solution. But later in life your needs change. With considerable assets at stake, your priority is protecting what you have. You value wealth preservation over wealth accumulation. You want to participate in a rising market, but can’t afford to see your wealth halved in a matter of months when the next bear market comes along.

But later in life your needs and priorities change. With considerable assets at stake, your priority is protecting what you have. You value wealth preservation over wealth accumulation. You want to participate in a rising market, but you can’t afford to see your wealth halved in a matter of months when the next bear market comes along.


Risk Tolerance

You don’t want to sit through gut-wrenching drawdowns being told to ‘keep the faith’ and ‘stay the course’, potentially waiting years before the market returns to its former levels. You want a strategy that balances capturing the upside with managing the downside.

That’s what active management means to us. Actively managing risk.

We believe the best strategy is one you’ll stick with, and for that to happen it has to match your risk tolerance.
