Mark introduces the IFA Step 6 painting, “Style Drifters,” and talks to Tom about the meaning of style drift. He walks through several charts that depict the style drift of various funds and concludes that style drifting doesn’t make sense, can be expensive, and can rob an investor of potential returns.
