#72. How many people actually beat the market?
Show Notes

Some do outperform the market, but how many, and how do you find these people?

In this episode, Trishul asks Aaron "How many people actually beat the market?" By focusing on the process and methodology of how they would even try to answer this question, they go through a variety of hypotheticals. Investment horizon matters. There are also investment risks, personal risks, and career risks to consider. They compare active managers to professional gamblers to examine how what may have worked in the past for an individual may not work in the future at scale. Listen to the end to see why there is probably less than a 1% chance of consistently outperforming a benchmark over long periods.
