Last week I dealt with the issue of fairly poor returns from some larger super funds over the last 10 years as detailed in the recent APRA Annual Statistical Bulletin.

You might recall that I noted that perhaps some superannuation investors are noticing that index funds are not only cheaper but also seem to produce better returns.

Right on queue with these thoughts the Knowledge@Wharton email published an article titled, "If Index Funds Perform Better, Why Are Actively Managed Funds More Popular?"

The report deals with the US market which is not exactly comparable with Australia. Nevertheless the following quotes are worthy of some note:

During the week Russell Investments predicted that ETFs would rise to $6b in FUM in 2011.

The race for the retail investment dollar continues and if you believe the Wharton research it looks like active managers will continue to have a fair slice of the action.
