In the world of investing, the Holy Grail is finding an investment manager who can reliably, persistently deliver alpha – a feat that seems to be of increasing rarity, as active managers in the aggregate continue to see outflows due to ongoing under performance. Even though Wall Street tries to keep alive the debate about the merits of active versus passive investing, a clear trend has emerged over the last several decades in which investors are slowly but steadily abandoning the hope of out performance that active management offers in favor of the certainty of earning market (not average) returns that passive management provides.The trend has been inexorable as investors become more and more aware of the low and declining odds that active management will outperform.
This CPE webinar, based on Larry’s book, The Incredible Shrinking Alpha, co-authored with Andrew Berkin, will demonstrate that while it is possible to generate alpha (earn returns above risk-adjusted benchmarks) the odds of doing so are so low that it simply isn’t prudent to try. Larry will explain why the case against active management has been getting persistently stronger over the past 25 years.
The Webinar will cover four main themes :
Larry will also explain why the trend toward increasing hurdles to the generation of alpha will continue, persistently lowering the odds of generating alpha, making active management a loser’s game.

He has had his own articles published in the Journal of Accountancy, Journal of Investing, AAII Journal, Personal Financial Planning Monthly, and the Journal of Portfolio Management.
