1.READING
1. Why are people getting angry with active money managers?

Because they are not performing better than passive managers, who simply invest in indexed funds

2. Why did indexed funds develop?

Because people argued that it was impossible to consistently do better than the markets (and they wanted to take advantage of
the bull markets in the 80s and 90s)

3. What is the efficient market hypothesis?

The efficient – market hypothesis is that a company’s share price always accurately reflects all available useful information.
Further analysis will not reveal any additional information, so there is no way of knowing more than the rest of the market
participants

4. What is George Soros’s argument against the efficient-market hypothesis?

George Soros argues that markets often over – or undervalue things, and that high and low share prices can make things
happen which in turn have an effect on prices.

5. How did Peter Lynch beat the market?

Peter Lynch found good companies that the market was undervaluing

6. Why does the article recommend that the average investor should use a passive index linked fund rather than an actively
managed one?

Because most active managers do worse than the market average, and unlike passive managers they also charge fees.

I'm afraid don't think that's very logical.

5–b

That'll make things worse!

6-e

You shouldn't do that!

I'm not sure that that would make things any better.

Perhaps you should consider a different investment
strategy?
