The active versus passive debate is a contentious issue. Filled with concrete evidence and comprehensive money management strategies, this chapter from The Only Guide You'll Ever Need for the Right Financial Plan delves into the case for passive investing over active investing. You can do so by investing in passively managed investment vehicles like index funds and passive asset class funds. You are virtually guaranteed to outperform the majority of both professionals and individual investors. Written for savvy investors and advisors, this chapter helps you:
  • Integrate a passive investing strategy
  • Maintain your portfolio's risk portfolio in a tax-efficient manner
  • Determine the difference between the theories of efficient versus inefficient markets
  • Make cost-effective investment decisions

From Larry Swedroe, the author of the bestselling series of "The Only Guide" investment books, with Kevin Grogan and Tiya Lim, this chapter helps you integrate diversification, low turnover, and asset allocation into one plan that meets the needs of a unique situation.
