Women in Business Conference: Agile Lead-HER-ship: The Double-Bind Redefined
The Annual Women in Business Conference is an event unique to Montréal and one of the largest and most prestigious events of MMWA and John Molson Women in Business Club’s (JMWIBC). Started in 2009, the WIB Conference has grown to bring together over 150 attendees including students, alumni, faculty, Montreal business professionals and distinguished speakers. The theme for this year’s conference is “Agile Lead-HER-ship: The Double-bind Redefined.”
Finding a mutual-fund manager who can beat the market is tough. Winners flame out. Losers revive. The resurgent losers flame out again.
No wonder low-cost index-based exchange-traded funds and mutual funds—which seek only to mimic the return of a designated slice of the market—have eclipsed actively managed funds as the investment of choice for many people.
... One problem: Over long periods, few fund managers continue to outperform, says Laurent Barras, a finance professor at McGill University in Montreal.
