I have to re-iterate your title is very misleading.

Thanks for reading Charles! I feel this is less to do with passively managed funds vs actively managed funds and more to do with investor behavior. One can very well underperform even in a passive indexed fund if one tries to time the market or is influenced by the moods of the market. Dalbar Inc research considers the timings of entries and exits into the funds.

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
