57. Passive vs Active Investments

Welcome back to another episode of the 360 Money Matter Podcast! For today’s episode, we’re mixing things up a bit and Billy and Andrew go head to head in a  debate on what is a better investment approach: passive or active investments. 

On the topic of investments, the first thing that usually comes to mind is the word “money”. However, investing is more than just the funds you put in. It also requires you to invest time, effort, knowledge, and attention in managing your investments. Sounds easy right….. As long as you know which investments to choose. 

Today we’ll be debating Passive or Index Investment and Active Investment styles and the good, the bad and the ugly as well as their cost, diversification, required skill sets, status during market cycles, and track record of performance. Both have their own limitations and benefits but at the end of the day, it’s more about finding the right blend for you.

Tune in to learn which of these investment strategies best fits you!
