“The average investor is earning less than 50% of the overall stock market return
For more than 25 years studies show the average investor on Main Streets has earned less than 50% of the overall stock market return. Adding to the confusion is the fact investing is a zero sum game. In order for someone to win in the markets someone has to lose.
If investors are giving up half the return of the market that return is going somewhere. Likely a large brokerage house or bank is taking it, as they are better equipped creating an uneven playing field between Main Street and Wall Street.
There are many factors which support these studies; Lack of transparency into fees and commissions, the speed of the information age is counterintuitive to long term investing, investor behavior often leads to panic in times of market volatility, chasing performance or the next hot investment, not truly understanding risk tolerance and risk capacity, and abandoning a long term strategy in the wake of short term losses.
