White paper: Thrivent Mutual Funds Active vs. Passive Management Study

09/21/2021

By Gene Walden, Senior Finance Editor and Jeff Branstad, CFA, Model Portfolio Manager | 09/21/2021

Although index funds have developed a reputation for outperforming actively-managed funds during sustained bull markets, the Thrivent Mutual Funds Active vs. Passive Management Study determined that when U.S. equity markets have turned turbulent, actively-managed, no-load mutual funds—both domestic large cap core and small cap core stock funds—have significantly outperformed their corresponding indexes.
