13F watch: Activist investors fill the void
from CFA Institute's Enterprising Investor
Thanks to a bull market and strong relative returns, assets under management for activist investors have swelled — tripling in just the last five years — allowing these high profile fund managers to launch more campaigns and take on bigger companies. There have been well over 200 activist campaigns launched in each of the past three years, an eight-fold increase since 2000.
