The AAII Houston Chapter presents...


"A Case for Index Fund Portfolios"

    Discussed by:

    Richard A. Ferri, CFA
    Founder, Portfolio Solutions

The success of index investing in individual asset class categories has been widely documented, but surprisingly little research is available that compares the performance of diversified portfolios of index funds with portfolios of actively managed funds. A prudent mutual fund selection strategy is important to an investor’s wealth accumulation. Rick Ferri’s research is unique in comparing two distinct strategies: one that selects low-cost market-tracking index funds exclusively and a second that selects from actively managed funds that attempt to outperform the markets. He found overwhelming evidence in support of an all-index-fund strategy. The probability of outperformance using the simplest index fund portfolio starts in the 80th percentile and increases from there.
