CLT-Passive Investing is a Series of Active Decisions
Wed, September 13 12:00 pm – 1:15 pm
Investors have increasingly adopted indexing as part of their mix of investments given in part to the low relative fees and the fact that traditional active managers have had a hard time consistently beating indices over time. Upon a deeper look, indices make many active decisions but do so within a rigid set of rules. This presentation evaluates many of these decisions, and the total costs associated with a rigid process, and proposes a thoughtful and time-tested alternative.
