The Fortis Wealth Smart Passive investment management philosophy evolved from the academic research of economic professors Kenneth French and Eugene Fama, the Nobel laureate. Their pioneering work on the science of capital markets is based on the core belief that over time, capital markets work efficiently. The world’s most successful investors have one thing in common — they adhere to a carefully defined plan that stands up to economic cycles and various market conditions. Trying to “beat the markets” through frequent trading and timing strategies inevitably results in high costs to investors and, as research shows time and time again, a low probability of success. Empirical evidence suggests that such speculation has always been a loser’s game and is increasingly more so in today’s world of high speed information flow.
