Actively Managed Funds under-perform Passive Index Funds in the majority of cases. Managed funds usually exist in order to beat the market. They generally don't succeed. This is not an opinion or a prediction, it is a fact which you will see full evidence of in a moment.

I will start however by reminding you of another fact. Your behaviour as an investor will have potentially far more of an impact on your investment success than whether you are invested in actively managed funds or passive. By 'behaviour' I mean whether you stick to the strategy or not when your portfolio is either screeching upward or downward at a future date. With that irrefutable truth out of the way, lets look at the facts.

When it comes to investing and choosing the best available solution, whether managed funds or passive or whatever, we like facts. We try to ensure you, dear reader, have access to facts. We abhor opaqueness and smoke-n-mirrors when it comes to you investing your future wealth. Whether it is a kids savings account, a windfall, a retirement pot, your life savings or a retirement income vehicle. Facts are the only things any of us should focus on.

This week we share a short piece from the Oracle of Omaha, Warren Buffett.

We learn about 'Gotrocks Family', how they had it all, and how they managed to throw it away, or more accurately, to have had it taken away from them!

I consider if this 'informed turkey' is actually voting for Christmas?!

We also share our view on how Irish investors might avoid such disasters, and to keep more of the returns they deserve.

Hope it helps,

What is the Standard Fund Threshold in Ireland? This week, in what is a short 4 day work week, we share a short 4 minute read that will give you most of what you might need to know about the Standard Fund Threshold, for now! You'll learn the history, the current threshold, the REAL threshold, and a little-known nugget that can help you squeeze the max value and tax efficiency out of your pension pot. I hope it helps.
