November 21, Impact Of Passive Debated For every research paper which argues passive investment has a negative impact on competitiveness, there is one that says there is no impact, says Mike Simutin, associate professor of finance and associate director of the International Centre for Pension Management, Rotman School of Management.
The issue is whether the simultaneous ownership of stock in competing companies where none of the stock holdings is large enough to give the owner control of any of those companies results in non-competitive behaviour.

He said some legal experts argue that common ownership by funds violates antitrust law and could result in price fixing and lessening of competition. However, investment management is not ownership, he said, and asset managers are investing on behalf of their fund members. Funds may not have voting rights to all the stocks they hold and may not even vote all their shares the same way, said Simutin.
This marks an estimated annual increase of 4. Macfarlane family chair, professor of business administration, Darden School of Business, University of Virginia. He cited statistics that 76 per cent of large cap funds underperform and the situation is worse in Canada where only one in 10 managers beat their benchmarks.
This is compounded by the higher fees associated with active management which means even fewer managers outperform their benchmark. He said the movement to passive is growing and currently about 40 per cent of U. Canada has not grown as fast as only one out of six dollars are passively invested.
Investors do need to determine if their active manager really is. A manager is active if more than 60 per cent of its assets are actively managed. However, investors run the risk of paying for active management and getting passive funds if indexation is hidden in active products.
And there is a lot of hidden indexation in Canada, he said. It acknowledges that a sector-wide plan would achieve efficiencies of scale, improved investment opportunities, and savings in plan administration.
It also announced that the university sector JSPP, once established, is expected to be treated similarly to other broader public-sector, solvency-exempt JSPPs. Amendments to the Pension Benefits Act PBA will facilitate the merger of all types of pension plans into public sector JSPPs, including hybrid plans those with both defined benefit and defined contribution provisions.
Despite this, index funds still beat active managers. Despite this growing popularity, their impact in a number of areas is still open to question. While it could be argued they are providing liquidity because more people are purchasing them, the question is does this improve or decrease price efficiency.
In fact, everyone moving in the same direction could create price anomalies which active managers can take advantage of. Volatility is another areas where there are two sides with no clear answers.
This depends crucially on funds flows as passive flows reduce volatility while volatile flows increase volatility. Still it appears that classic index investors are much more stable through volatile markets so these investors can stabilize markets.
However, passive investing may create market instability due to feedback loops. People want an index so it has to buy the underlying assets and drives prices up. Index and passive investing may also be helping to expand the bond market due to increased demand and improved liquidity. This, in turn, may encourage issuers to take on more debt and leverage in good times.
