The elections and investing for turbulent times

Session 2 of 3 | What do we really know about index funds?

Date: Wednesday, June 17, 2020 Duration: 60 minutes Time: 3:00 p.m. ET

You can’t watch TV or read any financial news without hearing about indexes. Whether up or down, these are often the lead story. In the early years, indexes were a way for investors and portfolio managers to keep score as returns were compared to index benchmarks asset managers around the world sought to beat. Now, indexes have further evolved into a basis for specific investment strategies. While we see how the performance of indexes became a proxy for the performance of financial markets, how are they constructed and what potential biases do they present? And how did indexes become so instrumental as the basis for investment strategies? Please join us as we explore these topics and answer your index questions.
