Notes:
It’s ironic that by chasing average market returns an investor can hope to exceed the returns of most investors. By definition, most investors cannot beat market averages after expenses. Index funds are based on the theory that markets are so efficient that one is unlikely to beat market performance and so is better off keeping expenses low and trying to match market returns.
