A Renowned Investor Supports Warren Buffet’s Investment Strategy

Warren Buffet has vowed to give $1 million to charity in his S&P 500 passive index fund investment bet against a group of hedge fund managers. The bet, which will be decided this year, has received its fair share of criticism. On his article, published on CNBC, Tim asserted that Warren’s strategy was good. He explained that most people invest in expensive funds. In the end, these investments turn out to be mediocre, as investors do not make huge returns. Warren opted to invest in simple low cost passive investment. This is because he has extensive experience of making better investment returns from the bottom-up investing approach.

Tim warned investors to be careful about passive and active investment. He explained that it is difficult to tell which funds will perform better since they all pose diverse challenges such as excessive trading, high management fees and unknown volatility risks. Tim asserted that the smartest way of investing is targeting low cost investments that deliver better long-term returns.

Dick Devos, Remarkable Businessman

Richard Marvin Devos, Jr, (Dick) heir to the Amway empire and husband of our new Secretary of Education, Besty Devos was born in October, 1955 in Michigan to wealthy Richard Devos, Sr. The elder Devos is co-founder of Amway and once owner of the Orlando Magic Basketball team. A graduate of Northwood University Dick, is the father to four grown children, two boys and two girls.

After earning his bachelor degree in business administration at Northwood, Dick was accepted to Harvard University, and the Wharton’s School of Executive Study Program; however, he did not graduate. He does have honorary PhDs from Grove City College, Central Michigan University and Northwood University.

Dick’s professional career began at an early age as he recalls the young Amway business beginnings in his basement, where everyone participated in some aspect of its development. In 1974, he “officially” became a member of the Amway team learning about the different divisions. Ten years later he was made a vice president and oversaw international operations, which accounted for about five percent of the company’s revenue. When Dick left his Amway position in 1991, foreign sales exceeded domestic sales for the first time in Amway history. Dick retired from Amway in 2002 after returning to those roots in 1993.

Today, Dick has remained an active leader and philanthropist through his efforts with the Devos Family Foundation. Although, they prefer not to be highlighted for their philanthropic generosity, they recently revealed more insights into their $139 million lifetime donations. Some have estimated their charitable donations to exceed $1 billion. It’s a family affair that began with Dick’s parents and now extends to his children and their spouses. Through five family foundations, they have long been contributors to republican politics and campaigning efforts. However, their stance on public education is another passionate cause. To help individuals who may live in the “wrong zip code,” and not to condemn the current educational process, the DeVos’ simply see a need for some improvement. Education can be more than a “one size fits all” effort. Their generous giving’s also include the arts and culture industry.
