Index Funds

As a tribute to Jack Bogle, index fund inventor and founder of Vanguard, this month’s newsletter focus is how good investing oftentimes is boring investing:

  • Read: From The Art of Manliness, this Know-Nothing Investing: How to Get Started is a brief, walk-you-through post on the basics of index funds, including 3 benefits of investing in said index funds. The author also recommends this book The Bogleheads’ Guide to Investing, forwarded by Jack Bogle.
  • Listen: This interview of Scott Malpass by Capital Allocators Ted Seides is a fascinating look at the esteemed Vice President and Chief Investment Officer of Notre Dame University, where he oversees the school’s $12 billion endowment. Scott earned his B.A. and M.B.A. degrees at Notre Dame, and returned to South Bend at the ripe age of 26 following a brief stint on Wall Street. His track record for almost 30 years, as defined by both performance and impact, place him indisputably in rare company at the very top of the field.
  • Watch: In this 20-minute video explaining Vanguard Index Funds for Beginners, Ryan Scribner discusses what an index fund is, why you should consider investing in it as a beginner, as well as the differences between index funds, mutual funds, and ETFs.
