When:  Mar 6, 2024 from 11:30 AM to 01:00 PM (CT)
Associated with  CFA Society Houston

Join us for a luncheon at The Briar Club.


"Indexing is Active"

Investors have increasingly adopted indexing as part of their mix of investments due in part to the low relative fees and the fact that traditional active managers have had a hard time consistently beating indices over time. Upon a deeper look, indices make many active decisions but do so within a rigid set of rules. This presentation evaluates many of these decisions, examines the total costs associated with a rigid process, and proposes a thoughtful and time-tested alternative.
