Actively managed funds cost more and perform worse than their passive managed benchmarks. This is proven by SPIVA and institutional based research. The longer time period you look at the worse actively managed funds perform.
My guess is a bunch of Funds lobbied to get put in the list because they want to be a part of the money grab... grabbing our money. Proceed at your own risk.The Persistence Scorecard shows that regardless of asset class or style focus, active management outperformance is typically short-lived, with few funds consistently outranking their peers or benchmarks.
Recent years illustrate this point quite well. Exhibit 1 shows that the top-quartile funds of 2019 often continued to lead the way in 2020. Had these funds developed a consistent winning strategy? Sadly, no. Even with the bull market extending into 2021, these funds quickly reverted to the mean, and only 2.2% of the 2019 domestic equity winners remained in the top quartile by 2021.
