BQ Big Decisions: Active Vs Passive—Which Voice Should Your Investments Speak In?
BloombergQuint’s Big Decisions podcast gets you the insights you need to make big money decisions with confidence.
Like English grammar, mutual funds too have active and passive. The distinction is buying and selling stocks to beat benchmarks versus following an index and receiving returns.
In an actively managed mutual fund scheme, the fund manager chooses stocks to buy from within a certain category based on analysis. In a passively managed scheme, an asset manager allocates money to stocks in proportion to their weight in an index, say Nifty 50.
On this BQ Big Decisions podcast, BloombergQuint speaks to Aashish Sommaiyaa, managing director at Motilal Oswal Asset Management Company; and Pratik Oswal, head-passive funds at Motial Oswal about how to use passive mutual fund schemes, and why they’re the ideal investment for the novice investor.
