Robin Wigglesworth: Passive investing has won the argument



Robin Powell’s guest on the latest episode of The TEBI Podcast is Robin Wigglesworth, global finance correspondent for the Financial Times.

Wigglesworth is the author of Trillions, a new book on the past, present and future of index investing. Currently living in Norway, he covers macroeconomics, finance, investing and markets internationally for the FT. 

In this episode, Wigglesworth declares the active versus passive debate over, with passive the decisive victor. The only question now, he says, is just how dominant passive investing will become.

The evidence is clear that you are far more likely to achieve your financial goals if you use an adviser and have a financial plan.

That’s why we offer a service called Find an Adviser.

Wherever they are in the world, we will put TEBI readers in contact with an adviser in their area (or at least in their country) whom we know personally, who shares our evidence-based investment philosophy and who we feel is best able to help them. If we don’t know of anyone suitable we will say.

We’re charging advisers a small fee for each successful referral, which will help to fund future content.
