Warren Buffett Totally Concurs

Read what the world’s most successful investor, Warren Buffett has to say about index funds and the principle of keeping a portfolio simple. In the reproduced articles below, Warren Buffett consistently recommends the S&P500 (SPY) index fund.  Prior to 1/1/2018 IFR recommended the Vanguard Total Market Index Fund (VTI), a fund that tracked all the 3700 US companies instead of the 500 of the S&P. VTI has consistently slightly outperformed SPY.

In January of 2018, IFR identified three index funds: ISHARES CORE S&P SMALL CAP VALUE (IJS),   POWERSHARES NASDAQ 100 (QQQ) and GUGGENHEIM S&P 500 EQUAL WEIGHT (RSP) that, over a 17 year period, have significantly outperformed the Vanguard Total Market Index Fund.

When you read that Warren Buffet recommends the S&P500, be aware that the IFR outperforms the S&P500 but has the same characteristics of low cost, low risk, market tracking, passive investing, low capital gains.
