Index Funds Outperform Actively Managed Funds

This is a very important story that has been under-reported/recognized. Jack Bogle of the $4.2 trillion Vanguard funds has said this for years (probably decades?). Great NYT (4/14) article on Vanguard https://goo.gl/ayCfoV . Vanguard is the king of index funds taking in $1–2 billion a day and is effectively owned by the fund holders.

One consideration — as these indices outperform and more money is simply dumped in indices, the underlying stocks might be a bit inflated (although I would not bet against that). And naturally, if the market declines, fund withdraws will put even more pressure on the stocks in the big indices…feeding more withdraws.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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