After working in finance for the last 18 years, I finally realized that putting my hard-earned money into actively managed funds isn’t worth it.

I’ve switched from actively managed funds to index ETFs. These are completely passively managed but still outperform most professional funds.

Staggeringly, 88% of professional fund managers in the US underperform the S&P 500, while 92% of European funds underperform the S&P 350 Europe.

I don’t understand how big fund managers justify their fees. It’s baffling why people continue to invest in actively managed funds instead of choosing index ETFs or even randomly picking stocks!

Look, you can hire my cat, Bunbun, to pick your stocks, and she is more likely to perform better than those professional fund managers — even though she doesn’t even have an MBA.

Bunbun is a 2-year-old cat with an extraordinary origin story. We discovered her as a kitten, just a few weeks old, abandoned and dodging cars on one of the busiest streets in Hong Kong, while we were passing by in a taxi.
