The war of words – and data – in the active vs. passive debate continues apace with a new report from Invesco.

“Our results show that … in aggregate, more than 60% of high active share fund assets outperformed their benchmarks, after fees, in a variety of measures — excess returns, downside capture and risk-adjusted returns.”
