What is the difference between actively and passively managed funds?

Actively managed funds have an individual portfolio manager or a team of managers making decisions for the fund.

Passively managed funds are used to track the returns of a particular market index or benchmark, as closely as possible. Since the investment strategy for passive funds is not proactive, the management fees are usually much lower than fees for active funds.
