Capitol Group Chairman Defends Actively Traded Funds

Timothy Armour has worked as an equities manager for the 86-year-old Capital Group of mutual funds for 33 years, and is now CEO.

In a recently article published by CNBC, he argues with Warren Buffett that passive index fund investing is not necessarily the best strategy for individual investors to build wealth with. He points out that although many investors have put their money into passive index funds, studies show many of them don’t understand that they are fully exposed to the risk of market crashes.

He also points out that the funds of his own company, Capitol Group, have a total combined life of 653 years. And yet on average they have returned 1.47% more than the relevant benchmark indexes.

He could also point out that success at actively investing for Berkshire Hathaway is what made Warren Buffett the most famous investor in history. He is known for practicing value investing, not index investing and what Armour knows.

Armour graduated from Middlebury College with a degree in Economics. He started out at Capitol Group in their Associate Program. As a novice analyst, he covered international telecommunicati and service companies in the United States. Armour ‘s worked his way up the ladder, and in 2015 he took over as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. They manage $1.5 trillion.

The Financial Times recently said in an article on Armour that he has decided to challenge the growing popularity of passive index funds.

Tammy Mazzocco Makes Real Estate Her Gold MIne

Tammy Mazzocco is not afraid of working hard, and the real estate business is just the place for her to be. She is a very successful residential real estate professional in central Ohio who covers four counties of territory.

She got her start in the real estate business as a secretary to a group of commercial real estate agents and worked in that capacity for the first ten years or so. Then seeing how profitable the sales end of real estate could be, she made the switch to sales in 1999. She joined the RE/MAX group of realtors in Pickerington, Ohio and she has not slowed down since.

Tammy Mazzocco likes to start her day as early as she can to get paperwork, emails and other office duties out of the way so she can get out and start showing properties to families. She knows the showing houses is where the rubber meets the road and it is where people make their decisions as to making a commitment. People have to walk through, ponder, and imagine they living there before they can realistically buy a house.

People are in a vulnerable state when they are in the house buying mode because first of all, they are operating out of their comfort zone for the most part. They are in a new geographic territory, and they are about to make one of the largest financial decisions of their lives. They usually do a lot of talking, and Tammy listens.

Tammy has great respect for people’s time and their financial conditions, and she tries to be as helpful as she can. When people can be reassured, and they know that you are sincere and caring, then they open up and trust you. Tammy will spend as much time with buyer prospects as is needed. This tactic certainly pays off as Tammy has the track record in sales to verify it.
