Active versus passive investing
What else is on the menu?
In this article, we will present two alternative strategies that can be used by a portfolio manager. The strategies will exist in two versions (low-risk and high-risk profiles) and the management of the strategies will be kept to a minimum—no stop loss will be used and the number of trades will be limited to one per month. We will compare these two strategies to a simple buy-andhold strategy in the S&P 500. We will also look at the behavior of the different strategies under extremely volatile market conditions.
