Investors Flee Actively Managed Funds

News summary by MFWire's editors

Today's Wall Street Journal's Fund Fiend column highlights the trend towards investors shelving managed mutual funds and replacing them with index-based strategies, especially exchange-traded funds. (The column is part of the Journal's monthly "Investing in Funds" special report section.)

Funds feeling the investors' cold shoulders include Fidelity Growth Company [see profile], which has reportedly beaten the Standard & Poor's 500-stock index by an average 4.9 percentage points a year over the past three years but has seen $1.7 billion go out the door in the past year, according to Morningstar; T. Rowe Price Blue Chip Growth, [see profile]; Causeway International Value [see profile]; and American Funds [see profile], which has reportedly seen its American Funds EuroPacific Growth, beat its benchmark by 350 basis points annually over the past five years but experienced $1.4 billion in outflows.
