Active management

Active management is an investment strategy that diverges from a market-value-weighted index, often involving regular transactional activities.

Delving into the realm of factor investing essentially means adopting an active strategy against a broad market-weighted index. However, it's important to differentiate between factors with positive premiums, like the low volatility anomaly, and those with negative premiums.
