Exploring the Performance of Actively Managed and Index Funds

Episode Description

Ready to pull back the curtain on the mysteries of investing in public mutual funds and index funds? You're in the right place as we tackle the complexities of active and passive fund management. We guarantee you’ll gain a deeper understanding of how these funds operate, their associated fees, and the significance of clear investment goals.

Now, let's talk about the lifecycle of actively managed funds. We'll examine real-life examples, such as the Russell 1000 Large Cap Growth Index, Morningstar Large Cap Growth Trust, and Vanguard Large Cap Growth Index, over fourteen 10-year periods since 2000. Plus, we’ll dissect the performance of six randomly selected funds over a decade and a half. You'll learn how the sequence of returns impacts performance and why it's crucial to grasp the implications of holding onto an underperforming fund.

Toward the end of the episode, we question why financial institutions are promoting index and passive investing. While it may seem like a one-size-fits-all solution, we challenge this notion and reveal how these institutions profit from investors, regardless of performance. We urge you to question what you’re told and conduct independent research for the best investment outcomes.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
