Standard Life chief: where passives sit in our future plans

Passives are an increasingly crowded market, but one that active managers are trying to make sure they're not completely left out of. 

In a series of videos on the upcoming merger of Standard Life and Aberdeen Asset Management, Standard Life boss Keith Skeoch - who will serve as joint CEO of the combined group - outlines how he intends to build a 'world class' business.

While active fund management remains key component to achieving this goal, he indicates passive could also pay a role.

In this video, Skeoch – who previously discussed the performance of Gars – said investors will continually want outcome-orientated strategies but passive approaches will have an increasingly important role to play in helping to deliver this.
