Alternatives to Alternative Investing - Show 40-1
July 17, 2012
As the old saying goes, “Do as I say, not as I do.” Although Yale Endowment CIO David Swensen tends to invest in some alternative investments, he is a strong proponent of index funds, telling NPR that over reasonable amounts of time, you stand little chance of beating the index fund. Most investors who try to emulate Swensen’s success do not fully understand the inner workings of alternative investments, including their true costs and their real returns. Mark takes a look under the hood of the Yale Endowment Model. He examines which alternative investments are a waste of time, and if any are worth considering at all.
