Warren Buffet has recently grabbed the headlines by betting $1 million for a charity cause based on his ability to make better investment returns than an elite team of hedge fund managers. By funding in the S&P 500 passive index stock, Mr. Buffet believes he can pull off such a remarkable feat compared to the seasoned hedge fund managers.
Upon closer analysis, Mr. Buffet couldn’t be further from the truth. The current crop of investors is highly prone to exorbitant charges and mediocre in worst case scenario. Tim Armour, who happens to be a huge fan of Buffet, highly praises his commitment to simple investments and low costs which should be held on a long-term basis. Mr. Buffet’s approach to investment in a bottom-up approach has proven to be an enormous success over the years, courtesy of its ability to build great portfolios within an ever-changing economy. Based on his invaluable experience and excellent track record, Buffet is of the opinion that Americans should embrace the culture of saving sooner rather than later.
