“During extended bull markets, many investors gravitate towards inexpensive passive investments. But over the long run, quality active management can add significant value to investment portfolios,” said Dan Charles, global head of business development and client service at William Blair. “Our enhanced approach to active management has helped us to deliver consistent, long-term performance by actively seeking compensated risks and avoiding uncompensated risks, and the new microsite delivers this story. Our active ownership culture permeates our entire business, promoting a dynamic environment in which our business and investment processes continuously evolve with a constant focus: aligning with clients’ interests and helping them achieve successful investment outcomes.”

The new website discusses each William Blair investment team’s unique active approach and highlights each strategy’s high active share. The site will feature related investing insights from the investment teams.
