Discover each quarter during one year our best fund leaderboards of our 70 universes of European domicilied funds: BSD Investing Best Active funds & BSD Investing Best Active & Passive funds and BSD Investing Best Passive funds. Thanks to BSD Investing proprietary methodology, all funds either index or non-index can, now, be ranked together taking into account all their specificities (costs, performance, impact of stock selection either when creating the index or managing the portfolio on performance…). We have put in place two types of rankings based on BSD Investing unique proprietary database aiming at giving a fair view between active and passive fund performances.
Based on BSD investing & L’Allocataire proprietary methodology to compare thematic funds (Read all the details about our new methodology in the following article “Thematic investing: A new fund selection methodology by BSD Investing & L’allocataire“ disclosed in our previous thematic newsletter), we can also rank index and non index thematic funds between them taking into account all their specificities (costs, performance, impact of stock selection either when creating the index or managing the portfolio on performance….)
In our methodology, those ETFs that do not follow a traditional passive benchmark (Sector, Factor, ESG, Thematic..) are included in active fund universes and compared to passive funds following a broader traditional benchmark in order to assess the relevance and suitability of the strategy. The choice of the benchmark will depend on the geographic exposition of the strategy to compare those funds and group them according to their unique commonality, their initial investment universe. Thematic funds with multiple geographic exposures should be compared to a broad market index with a global exposure, i.e. the MSCI ACWI index.
