No two active fund managers are the same.

They differ in style, strategy and how much risk they take. These differences also lead to differential investment performance. To understand how, and whether, active managers are genuinely adding value, investors need to break fund returns into underlying market performance, and returns generated as a result of investment manager skill.

Active Share is a risk measure that may help investors evaluate fund managers.

Active managers attempt to add value by deviating from benchmark indices. Active Share looks at the degree to which the investment holdings in an actively managed portfolio differ from those of a market index or performance benchmark. Active Share helps investors to understand and compare how much idiosyncratic risk is in a fund.

A low Active Share indicates that a fund manager is closely following an index, while a high Active Share indicates the fund manager is choosing investments that differ from the exposures in the fund’s benchmark. For example, a New Zealand equities fund that owns the same holdings, in the same proportions, as its S&P/NZX50 index benchmark would have an Active Share of 0%. A New Zealand equities fund that holds stocks that are completely different from those in the index would have an active share of 100%.

Tracking error volatility, often simply called tracking error, is the traditional measure used to assess active management. Active Share and tracking error emphasise different aspects of active management. Tracking error measures the volatility of the fund that is not explained by movements in the fund’s benchmark index. Active Share quantifies active management at the holdings level and mostly measures manager risk in terms of stock selection. Tracking error is a returns based measure, and is a proxy for systematic factor risks such as tilts to sectors, industries, macro trends and market timing. By measuring active management using Active Share, investors can get a clearer understanding of what exactly a manager is doing to drive performance, rather than drawing conclusions from observed returns.

Some investors are looking to invest in funds that have a high Active Share content as markets become more volatile and to avoid high cost ‘closet indexing’ funds (managers who claim to be active, and charge active fees, but whose portfolios are very similar to the benchmark portfolio). Research by Martijn Cremers and Antti Petajisto of the Yale School of Management indicates that US fund managers with high Active Share outperform their benchmark indexes, both before and after expenses, and that Active Share significantly predicts fund performance. Their research also notes that US Funds with medium or low active share show indifferent performance to underperformance versus benchmark indexes over time, particularly after allowing for expenses.

Investing very differently from a benchmark can contribute to a fund performing better than its benchmark – or worse. Active Share does not show that holding deviations from benchmark index exposures will necessarily deliver better outcomes for investors. Funds with a high Active Share may have a greater dispersion of upside and downside risk. Active Share is not a complete measure of risk. Active Share does not account for portfolio construction, concentration of positions or diversification. For example, including small illiquid stocks or developing businesses in an equity fund will have a higher risk than a large defensive liquid stock with the same size “active” position.

Fund’s with a high tracking error don’t always have a high Active Share – they could be using factor tilts rather than stock selection to generate outcomes. Funds with high Active Share don’t always have high tracking errors – they may be holding idiosyncratic investments that have low non-systematic risk.

Figure 1 is a stylised comparison of different management approaches, and how they compare in terms of Active Share and tracking error. To provide a local example we have included the positioning of three different equity strategies managed by Harbour Asset Management.

Evaluating active managers and Active Share - Good Returns (1)

Active Share is measured at a single point in time and needs to be calculated at the portfolio level regularly to be useful. It is difficult to calculate without a detailed data set and it can be cumbersome to create a series going back in time. Active Share may not provide a consistent comparison across different benchmarks and investment mandates.

But perhaps the key benefit in calculating Active Share for investors is that it exposes fund risk changes over time. Risk change over time, as measured by Active Share, could be part of a manager’s strategy. But risk change could indicate style drift (for example becoming more index aware), behavioural biases (for example risk aversion) or excessive risk taking incentives. Any of these changes may deliver investment performance that is very different from what the fund has generated in the past.

Investors can’t make decisions about manager skill or return potential using the Active Share measure alone. Investors considering investing in funds that purport to have a high Active Share component need to have a good understanding of the fund managers investment process and team. Importantly investors need to know whether the fund’s investment approach has been used consistently over a reasonable period of time and whether there has been any changes made to the fund’s investment process.
Investors also need to understand the funds risk profile relative to their own risk tolerance and relative to a reference benchmark (if they are using one). High Active Share funds should exhibit a degree of diversification and investment liquidity (ability to realise investments) that is consistent with investor objectives.

The development of the New Zealand capital market over the last few years gives fund managers a wider range of investment options from which to deliver Active Share. The introduction of new companies to the New Zealand market that may have return profiles that are very different from the broader market, and a broader range of fixed interest investment options, give fund managers a greater range of investments from which to create funds than was the case five years ago.

Active Share combined with tracking error and other measures can give investors a lot of information regarding risk and the style of a fund’s investment strategy. Active share is a useful metric to add to investors fund analysis tool kit especially as a comparison measure between funds over time. But to truly prove that managers with a high Active Share can persistently deliver better outcomes investors need to understand underlying investment processes and teams.

Active share is calculated by totaling the absolute value of the differences between the weight of each position in the portfolio and the weight of each holding in the benchmark and dividing by two.

Can active share be more than 100%? ›

It can also be achieved by purchasing non-benchmark securities. For a strategy that does not short stocks and does not purchase stock on margin, active share will always be between 0% and 100%. In contrast, the active share of a hedge fund strategy can exceed 100% due to its use of leverage and short positions.

Does active share matter? ›

Due Diligence Matters

The Relative Active Share metric allows investors to better understand how high or low a fund's active share is in the context of a category. The full study found no consistent link between the level of active share and propensity to outperform.

Private investments often play an important role in an investor’s portfolio, yet the inconsistent methodologies typically used to evaluate private investment performance and public market performance result in a lack of understanding about true relative performance. This report provides our views on best practices for measuring private investment performance and introduces a framework for benchmarking private investments.

Private investments often play an important role in an investor’s portfolio, yet the inconsistent methodologies typically used to evaluate private investment performance and public market performance result in a lack of understanding about true relative performance.. Private investments are different because fund managers, rather than investors (limited partners), control the decisions of when to call and return capital, when to exit, etc., meaning managers’ timing decisions meaningfully affect performance.. In Figure 2 , a private investment portfolio is compared to the CA benchmark universe using both measures (IRR and compounded TWR).. In addition to measuring portfolio performance by compounding TWRs, some institutions benchmark IRRs for private investments against public TWRs.. To more accurately measure private performance, investors should use IRRs to calculate private investment performance and compare those returns to a public market equivalent calculation.. These combined quarterly portfolio returns can then be compounded across time periods to create a total portfolio return inclusive of both public and private investments.. Performance of this public equivalent can then be measured through using private investment metrics such as IRRs and multiples, and the results are then compared to the corresponding measures for the actual private investment to compute value add.. For this analysis, investors may compare manager performance to the most similar public index for each manager or each fund.. In this example, 55% of the mature portfolio has been invested with funds that have outperformed the median fund in the benchmark.

Parasites, either internal (for example, worms) or external (for example, fleas and ticks), draw nutrients away from the host, and can cause disease.  This chapter will focus on demonstration of how your understanding of the life cycle of parasites for various species in different environments will help minimize infection or infestation and help with control of the parasite in the environment. The biggest difference appears to be in overall management between large animals and small animals. In large animals, there is concern about resistance of parasites to available deworming medications and great attention is paid to minimizing development of resistant parasites. This may include leaving a small population of worms untreated, so there always are susceptible worms in the overall population and we are not just continually killing off susceptible worms and leaving behind more and more resistant worms. In small animals, where parasites can be a significant public health concern, it is a goal to kill all internal and external parasites. This does not mean there are no concerns about resistance; in 2021, resistance in hookworms, one intestinal parasite of dogs, was described.

Describe fecal flotation testing, including fecal egg counts and fecal egg count reduction testing List common internal and external parasites of concern in common domestic species Describe life cycle of representative parasites as it pertains to control Describe drugs and mechanisms used for parasite control in common domestic species Define refugia Describe pasture management for parasite control. In large animals, there is concern about resistance of parasites to available deworming medications and great attention is paid to minimizing development of resistant parasites.. Understanding the parasite life cycle and the level of parasite pressure is key to the management of internal parasites.. When a parasite egg is shed on the pasture in the feces, this egg begins development, embryonating into a first stage larva (L1), then molting into a second stage larva (L2), and finally molting again into a third and infective stage larva (L3).. Control practices should consider the class (or age) of cattle, nutrition status, stress level, season, and likelihood of parasite contamination of the environment, and involve the use of pasture management options as well as the use of anthelmintic (dewormer) products for treatment.. Strategic deworming times the treatment so as to reduce the worm burden on the cattle and also decrease the parasite contamination of the pasture during the highest parasite period (spring/early summer).. Any time cattle are moving from pasture into a dry lot setting is a good time to deworm as this should clear cattle of parasite load for the time in the dry lot (similar to fall deworming) as there is no green grass to graze.. As in beef cattle, the overarching theme for the prevention strategy of parasitic infection is to reduce the animals’ exposure to parasites and their infectious forms.. Young horses and immunodeficient geriatric horses are most susceptible to heavy parasite burdens and disease, but all horses are susceptible under the right conditions and in the absence of an effective parasite control program.. Determination of the number of strongyle eggs per gram (epg) of manure helps owners and veterinarians to (i) estimate individual parasite burdens; (ii) identify the horses with moderate or heavy parasite burdens that will benefit from deworming; (iii) identify the specific horses within the herd that serve as the major long-term parasite reservoirs and require more frequent deworming; and (iv) determine which specific deworming products are effective against parasites on that farm.. Specific cut-offs for suspicion of resistance vary between medications and parasites, but in general a dewormer should be dropping egg counts by 90-95% or more if the parasite is susceptible to its killing effects.

ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager



Metrics are available for each of the following five fuel types:

  • Aggregate Meter(s)-Electric– Number of Individual Meters Included
  • Aggregate Meter(s)-Natural Gas– Number of Individual Meters Included
  • . Aggregate Meter(s)-District Steam– Number of Individual Meters Included
  • Aggregate Meter(s)-District Hot Water– Number of Individual Meters Included
  • Aggregate Meter(s)-District Chilled Water– Number of Individual Meters Included
. Common reasons for not being eligible include:
  • Your property is not able to earn a 1-100 score
  • You do not have an ENERGY STAR score of 75 or higher
  • You have already earned ENERGY STAR certification within the last 11 months
  • Your energy data is more than 120 days old
There are two eligibility metrics:
  • ENERGY STAR Certification - Eligibility for Report PED - will determine eligibility only for the Period Ending date specified in the report.
  • ENERGY STAR Certification - Eligibility for all PEDs - will determine eligibility for the property based on all possible PEDs.
Note: In order to be eligible to earn ENERGY STAR certification, your building must be located in the US or Canada..
  • You may exclude the GFA of certain Property Uses, if they meet these 4 criteria (see this FAQ for details):
    1. The Property Use is less than 10% of the building’s GFA
    2. The Property Use is not a property type eligible to receive an ENERGY STAR score
    3. The Property Use is sub-metered so that both the Property Use’s energy consumption and GFA can be excluded
    4. The Property Use’s energy use patterns are significantly different than those of the rest of the building (ex: A cell phone tower on a building)
  • “Parts of a building,” such as tenant spaces, measure the GFA of the “usable square feet.” Usable square feet include the specific area the tenant occupies to do business.. You may choose from the following options:
    • Total energy (or water) consumption for the whole building
    • Consumption for tenant areas only
    • Consumption for common areas only
    • Consumption for a combination of tenant and common areas, where you select all of the following which apply:
      • Tenant Heating
      • Tenant Cooling
      • Tenant Hot Water
      • Tenant Plug Load/Electricity
      • Common Area Heating
      • Common Area Cooling
      • Common Area Hot Water
      • Common Area Plug Load/Electricity
    • Consumption for a different configuration.. If your property is a mix of multifamily and single-family homes, the property would still be eligible as long as the single-family homes are less than 25% of the total GFA.

    To be eligible for an ENERGY STAR score and certification in Canada:
    • 2 units or more per building
    • Each building in the property must be either:
      • 4 or more storeys above ground, or
      • have a horizontal footprint greater than 600 m2 measured between exterior walls and firewalls
    • A common entrance for each building in the property
    • At least 80% occupancy
    • If buildings on a property do not meet the above definitions, they must be excluded from certification.
    . Gross Floor Area (GFA) should include all buildings that are part of the multifamily property, including any separate management offices or other buildings that may not contain living units.

    . Gross Floor Area should include all fully-enclosed space within the outside surfaces of the exterior walls of the building(s) including living space in each unit (including occupied and unoccupied units), interior common areas (e.g. lobbies, offices, community rooms, restrooms, common kitchens, fitness rooms, indoor pools), hallways, stairwells, elevator shafts, connecting corridors between buildings, storage areas, and mechanical space such as a boiler room.. There are several metrics to show the Property Types in a single Property:
    • List of All Property Types at Property – is a comma delimited list of all the property types for a single property, in alphabetical order.
    • Largest Property Use Type – is the name of the Property Type (ex: Office) that has the largest Gross Floor Area (GFA) for that property.
    • Largest Property Use Type – Gross Floor Area (ft²) – is the GFA for the largest Property Type.
    • 2nd Largest Property Use Type – is the name of the Property Type (ex: Office) that has the second largest GFA for that property.
    • 2nd Largest Property Use – Gross Floor Area (ft²) – is the GFA for the second largest Property Type.
    • 3rd Largest Property Use Type – is the name of the Property Type (ex: Office) that has the third largest GFA for that property.
    • 3rd Largest Property Use Type – Gross Floor Area (ft²) – is the GFA for the third largest Property Type.
    . Buildings containing multiple stores should be classified as enclosed mall, lifestyle center, or strip mall.

    Gross Floor Area should include all space within the building(s), including sales areas, storage areas, offices staff break rooms, elevators, and stairwells.

    To receive an ENERGY STAR score, a Retail Store must be a single store that is at least 5,000 square feet (464.5 m2) and has an exterior entrance to the public.

    Retail configurations eligible to receive an ENERGY STAR score/certification include:
    • free standing stores
    • individual stores in an open-air or strip mall
    • anchor stores in enclosed malls
    Retail configurations NOT eligible to receive an ENERGY STAR score/certification include:
    • enclosed malls
    • individual stores located within enclosed malls (except those with an exterior entrance)
    • lifestyle centers
    • strip malls
    • individual stores that are part of a larger non-mall building (i.e. office or hotel)
    Convenience Stores, Automobile Dealerships, and Restaurants are not eligible to earn an ENERGY STAR score as Retail.. These are open fields with no formatting, so please be careful when entering.
