Vanguard: Active Funds Can Outperform Passive

Tom Steinert-Threlkeld

Actively managed stock funds had the best performance over 20 years, edging passive stock funds 8.14% to 8.11%. And actively managed mutual funds of all types have done the best in the last five years, coming in at 1.98% where, for instance, passively managed exchange-traded funds lost 1.17% a year. Which just goes to show, when it comes to investing, active management versus passive management "is not an either-or" proposition.
