How To Make Passive Indexing Works For You???

Singapore Man of Leisure 6 August 2016 at 10:43:00 GMT+8

Now you understand why I must fight "Passive Indexing" with all my might?

Soon you'll be doing it full time just like me.

The day when you or me switch to passive indexing, its the day we CAPITUALTE.

When that day comes, don't poke me. Give me a shoulder to cry on... It's never pretty when a man looks into the mirror and discover he does not have the mojo anymore...

I wonder why no one goes to Hong Lim Park to scream GIC and Temasek should switch to passive indexing? Can save a whole army of active money managers and their support buy-side analysts?

Hmm ....

Those "Guru" bloggers who have commercial interests and NOT depending MAINLY on their investment/portfolio income for their household expenses advocating that retail investors are better off doing passive indexing. So are they Right?

They are probably right when you have fairly large investing capital and ONLY require 2 to 3% Mean Reversion ROC to fund your annual household expenses during your retirement.
Believe them. It is most likely to work in your favour!  
Passive Income of course!
You dare SMOL to come and fight.

    May be G should listen to Warren Buffett to invest in Index.

    1. Warren Buffett to heirs: Put my estate in index funds

    2. Heirs just need a small % Return to enjoy very good life for generations. LOL!

    3. How to pay CPF members 2.5%, 4%, 5% and 6% if on index investing?

    This video, targeted at students, illustrates our 5 investing principles:
    1. Pursue intrinsic value and maintain price discipline
    2. Practise long-term investing
    3. Pick our spots: be focused and leverage our strengths

    5. Prepare for the future

    Our investment framework distinguishes the three drivers of long-term performance for GIC:
    1. The performance of global markets, represented by the Reference Portfolio
    2. Our asset allocation strategy, as seen in the Policy Portfolio
    3. Skill-based strategies, as embodied in our Active Portfolio


    This is how and why GIC justify to employ top notch managers for her active investment? LOL

  4. CW,

    Take away excuses like:

    2) I have my own business to run;

    3) I put my family first;

    4) I have zero interest in developing my craft of investing/trading; I just want money with no effort...

    What's the reason we choose Passive Investing again?
