Investment funds - strategies.

Passive investment funds track a market index, or a specific market segment, by investing in a representative portfolio of assets, following a predetermined formula.

By contrast, active funds engage a fund manager who uses skill and judgement to select the investment assets.

Passive funds generally have substantially lower fees, reflecting the research and analysis costs saved.
