The End of Indexing : Six structural mega-trends that threaten passive investing Hardback


Index-tracking is the flavour of the day - it accounts for around one-third of the total US mutual fund market, and is still growing rapidly.

Indexing appears to be unstoppable. But, in The End of Indexing, investment veteran Niels Jensen presents a different vision.

In a forthright and compelling examination of the investment landscape, Jensen argues that the economic environment we are entering will be unsuited to index-tracking strategies. Jensen identifies six structural mega-trends that are set to disrupt investors around the globe:1.

End of the debt super-cycle2. Retirement of the baby boomers3. Declining spending power of the middle classes4. Rise of the East5. Death of fossil fuels6. Mean reversion of wealth-to-GDPIn conjunction, these six themes have the potential to create conditions resembling a perfect storm that will result in low economic growth for decades to come.

Investment techniques and methodologies - including passive investing strategies - that have worked so well in the bull market of the last 35 years will no longer deliver acceptable results. As a new investment approach is called for, The End of Indexing provides investors with a guide to the challenging environment ahead and a warning about the future decline of index-tracking.
