InvestED Ep. 130- Ignorance is Not Bliss

Today we’re looking at the differences between Active Investing & Passive Investing to help you better decide what’s best for your financial future.

In Episode 130 You’ll Learn:

  • What is Passive Investing?
    • Putting money into an Index/Exchange Traded Funds
    • Catch: If you’re investing in Indexed ETF’s you are just buying regardless of news, price, etc. which means nothing aside from money (not actual value) is majorly influencing the market.
  • What about Active Investing?
    • Mutual Funds, Rule #1 Style Investing, & Value Investing are all considered active because you have someone actively looking to increase your rate of return/”beat the market”.
  • Could ETF’s cause a major market crash? Find out!
