The AAII St. Louis Chapter presents...

The Quest for Alpha

    Discussed by:

    Larry Swedroe
    Principal, Director of Research, Buckingham Asset Management

Larry Swedroe will present research, data and advice from industry practitioners to show that it is extremely difficult to outperform the market. Examining the evidence from academic studies on mutual funds, pension plans, hedge funds, private equity/venture capital and individual investors, he demonstrates that the markets are indeed highly efficient. Larry will then explain why investors should instead focus on asset allocation, fund construction, costs, tax efficiency and the building of a globally diversified portfolio that minimizes, if not eliminates, the taking of idiosyncratic uncompensated risk.

Attend This Meeting and Learn...
About academically based evidence that shows markets are efficient
How mutual funds, pension plans, hedge funds and private equity haven’t consistently outperformed the market
About a prudent approach to investing that focuses on asset allocation, global diversification, fund construction, costs and tax efficiency
