Legendary Investment Thought Leader Charles Ellis Encourages Everyday Investors to Join The Index Revolution
Rebalance Investment Committee Member Charley Ellis champions index investment funds to achieve above average results in his new book, The Index Revolution: Why Investors Should Join It Now
Rebalance, a leading investment firm possessing one of the most experienced and well-known investment committees in the industry, congratulated today Charles D. Ellis, nationally-recognized author and investing authority, on the release of his 17th investment book, The Index Revolution: Why Investors Should Join It Now.
In his new book, Charles argues that over the past 50 years trying to beat the stock market has become a “loser’s game.” Wall Street professionals used to do 10% of the trading and now do 99%, and they all have access to the same information at the same time.
How do you win this loser’s game? “If you would like to achieve above average investing results, that’s easy; index. In addition, index investing results in lower taxes and less worry.” As Charles explains in his book, no matter what stage of life the investor is in, individuals should take advantage of indexing’s profound benefits, to achieve proven and consistent returns.
As an Investment Committee member at Rebalance, a leading national investment firm, Charles advises on Rebalance’s retirement investment strategies. “Our firm’s investment strategies are a reflection of Charley’s index investing philosophy,” says Scott Puritz, Managing Director at Rebalance, “and ‘The Index Revolution’ provides a roadmap for how to bring these benefits to everyday investors.”
