What’s more, it’s statistically proven that investors typically earn higher returns with professional investment management. A study by independent financial services research company Dalbar, Inc.
revealed that between 1984 and 2004, while the S&P 500 rose by an annual average of 13.2 percent, the individual mutual fund investor averaged only 3.7 percent earnings annually. The study suggested that many investors change their investment strategies too often to realize the market rates of return.
