In his commentary, Timothy Armour, who is the chairman and executive officer of Capital group, stated Warren Buffer was right about claiming that he can achieve a better return on investment compared to a group of hedge fund managers merely by investing in an S&P 500 passive index fund. Warren had placed a $1 Million Wagered for charity, and according to Timothy, it seems like Buffett will collect. Both Buffett and Timothy agree that the market is infested with many mediocre and costly funds that shortchange investors. Thus, the best investment is the low-cost, simple ones, and they should be held for the long term. The preeminent way to get the type of investment making the approach of bottom-up investment.
Buffett urges consumers to be wary of the product label that they get. That is because most of mutual funds give mediocre or poor long-term return. They do this since they have excessive trading and high management fees. Also, there is the risk of volatility and the opportunity cost of passive index investments which tend to be unknown. Buffett says if one wants to get a high return, they should make low-cost investments. It is not easy to tell which funds will do well, but those that have a low expense and high manager ownership are likely to do better. The fund manager invest their money alongside the other interested parties. Getting the right investment is paramount as it ensures that one retires early with enough money to spend the golden years. The change came as a leadership succession plan that was in motion for many years and was made formal when Jim Rothenberg the former chairperson passed.
