Active Funds Have Time on Their Side: Lubos Pastor

It has been another disappointing year for investors in actively managed funds.

In 2011, about 79 percent of large-cap mutual fund managers trailed the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index, according to Morningstar Inc. The average equity mutual fund lost almost 3 percent last year, compared with a 2 percent gain for the S&P 500, says Lipper U.S. Fund Flows. Hedge funds fared even worse, with an average loss of 5 percent, according to Hedge Fund Research Inc.
