Barron's: Actively Managed Funds Poised for Comeback 




In a cover story entitled "Stockpicker's Delight," Barron's lists just seven funds to consider. At the top is the AllianzGI NFJ Dividend Value Fund. See why our active strategy is getting noticed by one of the world's premier investment publications.  

Why Active Management Now?

  • Index funds are trading at record-high valuations due in part to record investor inflows
  • For tactical investors, active management can be seen as a contrarian move
  • Returns from index investing could 'underwhelm' for a while

What Barron's is saying about us:

  • All NFJ Dividend Value holdings pay dividends
  • Portfolio management demands value-priced shares
  • Fund yields upwards of 3%
