On October 6, Senior Investment Strategist Steve Lipper joined CNBC's Trading Nation and discussed our newest research examining the connection between active management and value-led markets with host Brian Sullivan.

Our recent study, The Undiscovered Connection, showed that small blend active management has outperformed more frequently in value-led markets.

Steve explained why this research is relevant to investors, and the prospects for small-cap, saying "We think that we're in the early stages of a transition…rotating from growth to value. Over the long term, value does better actually than growth, if you do rolling five-, rolling ten-year periods, most of those periods, value does better."

Steve also explained the importance of the research: “When people are constructing portfolios, what this frames out as, is the next five years are going to look a lot different than the last five years. And do you want to be wary of being overloaded with past winners?”
