HOW SHOULD I INVEST?
UNDERSTANDING WHERE YOUR MONEY GOES
It is important to consider the effect that costs can have on your portfolio and what you are actually paying for. The varying types of investments and the difference in charges can have a significant impact on results over time, so it is vital to understand where your money goes and what is right for you as an investor.
Working with Mathstone makes investment decisions easier than ever. The options available from a range of the world's best in low-cost, multi-currency investment solutions come with detailed rationale for all recommendations. A clear understanding of how and where your capital is being invested provides clarity and transparency regardless of what type of investor you are.
AM I A PASSIVE INVESTOR?
Passive investing aims to maximize returns by avoiding the costs associated with trading within an active fund. Passive investments aim to replicate markets (eg. the FTSE 100 or S&P 500), but with much lower costs than active funds that have managers to pay.
There has been a huge increase in demand for passive securities in recent years such as exchange traded funds (ETF's, aka trackers or index funds), and the choice now available is phenomenal. Investors can now enjoy easy access to a selection of stocks in niche sectors such as clean energy and technology, and also use of multi-asset funds that provide market sector and geographical diversity through a portfolio of regularly re-balanced ETF's for a fraction of the cost of managed funds.
AM I AN ACTIVE INVESTOR?
Active investment management involves fund managers buying and selling securities such as stocks and bond in an attempt to outperform markets and benchmarks.
Fund managers have come under increased scrutiny in recent years as historical data clearly shows that the majority regularly underperform the wider markets and also therefore, index funds. The more successful fund managers often have difficulty staying at the top raising questions over whether the fees they charge can be justified. There are however, fund managers that consistently outperform their peers making the fees they charge considered value for money for the expertise they bring.
CAN I USE BOTH?
Despite the compelling facts and figures for using passive investments, the concept is still new to many and experience shows us that some investors prefer to include active fund management within their portfolios. This is very easy to achieve, and by using discretionary fund managers that actively manage low-cost passive investments, or combining a blend of passive and top-decile managed funds, Mathstone ensures your capital will be managed in a quantitative and disciplined manner to give you real opportunities for security and growth.
