Most active managers have struggled to beat their benchmarks over the past decade. Passive management has been bolstered by strong tailwinds, including generally low volatility that has resulted in lower dispersion of returns across companies and sectors. The outbreak of COVID-19, however, ended the low volatility environment that followed the Global Financial Crisis (FIGURE 1).



Important Risks: Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal.
