In 2012, Most Active Investing Strategies Failed to Beat Their Benchmarks!

2012 proved to be a very challenging year for active mutual fund managers. The ups and downs of an election year proved again that it is hard to generate alpha against a proper benchmark.

Feb. 9, 2013 - PRLog -- In 2012, a whopping 88% of hedge funds, 65% of large cap core mutual funds, 80% of large cap value mutual funds and 67% of small cap mutual funds underperformed their benchmarks for 2012. This is according to Goldman's David Kostin. Bloomberg estimates that 635 hedge funds went out of business in 2012. That number is up 8.5% YOY. This shows us that most investors would have been better in passive funds.

According to CRSP (Center for Research in Security Prices), for the 10 years ending in 2011, only 53% of equity mutual funds survived the period and most (79.51%) active equity Managers failed to beat their benchmarks. The numbers are even worse for actively managed bond funds. Over the 10 year period, only 58% of bond mutual funds survived the period and 88.60% failed to beat their benchmarks. When funds don't beat their benchmarks, they typically get shut down and merge with other funds to erase the bad track record.  See my previous blog on this topic – Most active Managers fail to beat their benchmarks.
