Elon Musk recently stirred the old pot when he said passive investing had gone too far, and that there must be a shift back towards active investing. The quirky billionaire invoked the father of passive investing, saying that even Jack Bogle knew that passive funds had grown too big.

The latest edition of Financial Express Manage Your Money uncovers how that impacts mutual fund investors, or does it? Whatever the perceived ills (if any), passive investing remains the hassle free option to invest in mutual funds. We try to find if it is also a great wealth building avenue.

Featuring a great debate between two opposite schools of thought: Active vs Passive investing; followed by a discussion on how to build an investment portfolio with passive mutual funds.

Active mutual fund investing could be complicated, confusing, and demanding. While passive investing may not necessarily be safer, it is certainly easier. Our experts will unravel how this easier investing route can also be made profitable for you.
