Active Management

An investment strategy deployed by fund managers designed to maximize profits and outperform a designated benchmark.

Active management implies a hands-on, engaged type of portfolio management. The investor or portfolio manager tracks the market and makes decisions to sell, retain or purchase assets based on subjective analytical assessments of market trends.

The goal in active management is to perform better than a given asset index such as the S&P 500 over a specific timeframe.
