Description

Discover how you can make index funds and ETFs work for you without falling into the usual traps.

Are you lured into the index fund game without knowing what you are actually investing in and who really profits from your monthly contributions? Tired of always being on the losing end of the money game while fund providers reap their profits? Torn between hardened critiques and over-jubilant proponents?

With the ever-growing number of index funds and ETFs, it's no wonder that many retail investors are getting lost and confused. They simply don't understand what they are getting into, many times underestimating the real fees they end up paying even with "low cost" index funds and overestimating the returns they hope to achieve.

How have they become so popular?

Index funds and ETFs have seen stratospheric growth since the collapse of 2008 - benefitting from computerized trading, quantitative forms of investment management, and lack of alternatives.

Today, no matter where you look, the gospel of index fund investing has been taken to heart by the media and the masses alike. For the mass consumer, apparently, this form of passive investing is far superior - even revolutionary. But the voices of professional critics get ever louder and more abstruse stopping short of calling them the "devil's work". What is the truth? How exactly do index funds work? Are they really the sure bet they're made out to be or the path to poverty?

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Interesting viewpoint

A little schizophrenic at times going from the stock market is a good thing to it's hopeless, why even bother, you're going to die broke anyway.

The simple premise of diversification is extended to all your asset types, not just the market.

Overall, a good read but be prepared for a depressing middle section of the book.

Accompanying pdf is not formatted properly

Book is great so far, but am a bit frustrated that the accompanying pdf is not properly formatted. Graphs are not completely visible.
