The past weeks' events are stark reminders of the risks we all face today. This month, we assess whether passive investing strategies and robo-advisors are equipped to handle the unpredictability of chaos and crisis and remember that, "We'll always have Paris".
- Rush toward passive investing and growth of robo-advisors were themes and challenges for advisors likely to continue beyond 2015.
- When world events occur, are passive vehicles and robos able to cope with any market-related repercussions?
- Purely passive approaches can be risky; we need to make active investment decisions to adapt to a world that is changing and prone to bursts of crisis.
Be sure to watch the video where we talk about why advisors and active management are crucial in these times, and download the presentation for the key points in this month's piece.
