It is must be kept in mind that many of these indices are much younger than 15 years. The data used in the returns is backtested data provided by the index house. Past performance should not be used as an indicator of future performance.

Investors should learn more about individual indices, their methodology, start date, launch date and weighting rules before forming an opinion. What is listed below is only one data point. More detailed analysis is required before declaring an index as a “good performer” or “bad”.

Trivia The Argentine index MerVal or MERcado de VALores gave a staggering return of 31.9%, NASDAQ 14.8% and Gold INR 12.15%

When we look at a high return (lump sum or SIP) we cannot appreciate the risk associated with the journey. For example, gold 15-year SIP returns may look good today but how many would have kept the faith bet Nov 2012 to Aug/Sep 2019 when the price was “underwater” that is below the max.  That is a seven-year bear market.

People who invest in gold looking at its current high gold returns make two mistakes: (1) they do not appreciate the above-mentioned risk and (2) they expect similar returns and start investing at a time when the asset has already moved up. This argument is true for the above-listed equity indices as well.

Most investor problems can be traced to a lack of informed decision-making. We made bad decisions and money mistakes when we started earning and spent years undoing these mistakes. Why should our children go through the same pain? What is this book about? As parents, what would it be if we had to groom one ability in our children that is key not only to money management and investing but to any aspect of life? My answer: Sound Decision Making. So, in this book, we meet Chinchu, who is about to turn 10. What he wants for his birthday and how his parents plan for it, as well as teaching him several key ideas of decision-making and money management, is the narrative. What readers say!
