Good Advice About Stock Index Funds
Investing in Index Funds Is Still the Best Choice
If you are a small investor who wants to meet your long-term investment goals, to minimize risk and to save the time and expense of researching stocks for yourself, an Index Fund is the ideal investment vehicle.
Index Funds allow average people to participate intelligently in the stock market. If you have only $100 to invest, you can still buy shares in an Index Fund. People invest in Index Funds because they believe that stock markets are efficient and that stock-pickers on average will not do as well as the market. When you consider that other mutual funds, those with active managers, often do not perform as well as Index Funds, you can see why many small investors buy Index Funds."
