What's the Latest Word on Active Versus Passive?

News summary by MFWire's editors

The never-ending debate between proponents of active and passive investing continues Wednesday in the pages of the Wall Street Journal's latest "Investing in Funds" special report, even as the paper also takes another look at one of the newest frontiers in active investing: exchange-traded funds.

Fidelity equity group president Brian Hogan, FRC research analyst Christopher Yeomans, Hammond Associates senior consultant Bill Thatcher, Invesco U.S. growth investing chief investment officer Juliet Ellis, MFS Diversified Income Fund co-head Jim Swanson, Morningstar research vice president John Rekenthaler, Russell Investments client investment strategies CIO Erik Ristuben and Vanguard investment strategy group chief Francis Kinniry all weigh in for Annelena Lobb's article on the latest comparisons between active and passive mutual funds.

Meanwhile, the WSJ's Larry Light ponders whether or not "stock-picking managers [will] be the next big thing for ETFs" and highlights the niche's existing players, including: BlackRock's iShares, Grail Advisors, HS Dent, Invesco's PowerShares and Pimco. (He also points to fund firms interested in getting into the active ETF game, including John Hancock, Putnam, T. Rowe Price and Vanguard.)

Don Putnam, managing partner of Grail Advisors affiliate Grail Partners, PowerShares senior vice president of portfolio strategy Ed McRedmond, IndexUniverse.com editor Matt Hougan and several advisors offer their thoughts on actively-managed ETFs.
