Active management

Active management Definition

Active management refers to a portfolio management strategy where the manager makes specific investments with the goal of outperforming a benchmark index. Ideally, the manager selects securities that expose the portfolio to more risk than its index. If the additional risk generates excess return, the active management strategy has succeeded.

Active management is the opposite of passive management, where the manager does not seek to outperform his index.
