Episode 31: The Ongoing Debate of Active vs Passive

Christopher Tan

By investing into the entire market, it is no longer a pipe dream to have all the top investors, including the better active managers in the world, work for you.

In this episode, I will share the main problem associated with actively managed funds and why we have transited to mainly using ETFs, index funds, and evidence-based funds from Dimensional Fund Advisors.

Important note: If most funds cannot beat the market, and you are getting market returns, you are in fact getting much better returns.
