Mark Hebner explains that active investing is a strategy investors use when trying to beat a market or appropriate benchmark. Active investors rely on speculation about short-term future market movements. They commonly engage in picking stocks, times, managers, or investment styles. These self-defeating practices of active investors unnecessarily increase their risk, expenses, taxes, and anxiety. Most importantly, the sport of speculation deprives investors of the returns they could earn if they would just simply buy, hold and rebalance a globally diversified, low-cost and passively managed portfolio of funds matched to their risk capacity.
