Are Index Funds Still a Good Investment in 2020?
Does passive investing have a place in the most active market in recent history? Are index funds safe
INDEX FUNDS ARE THE epitome of passive investing.
Rather than trying to beat the market by selecting individual stocks, these funds own all stocks constituting the index, matching the performance of the underlying benchmark. There are plenty of advantages to this way of investing – lower fees, less reliance on the competence of a fund manager (many of whom fail to beat the market) and market-wide diversification make index funds one of the safest ways to invest your money.
