Why do low-cost index funds outperform 98% of actively managed funds in the long-term?

He explains what a risk-free rate and equity risk premium are. To learn about Robert A.

Jeff Bussgang presented a Skillshare class entitled "Mastering the VC Game: How to Raise Your First Round of Capital" at the Harvard innovation lab on April 3, 2012. Jeff is a Senior Lecturer in Entrepreneurship at HBS and a General Partner at Flybridge Capital Partners. Students learned about the startup financing landscape, how to find investors, how to pitch them, how to understand term sheets, and other tips for raising a first round of financing. The seminar was intended to address questions like: You've been working on a big idea and need financing to get it going: but how do you go about raising your first round of funding? What's the difference between angel, seed, and VC investors? How do you go about valuing your company and deciding on equity?
At a time when there are so many ways to fund your startup, from angels to accelerators, it's more important than ever to develop a funding strategy that fits your particular needs. In this segment, Katie Rae, Managing Director at Techstars and Project 11, tackles the difficult question of whether your startup should be raising money.

Financial Theory (ECON 251) This lecture continues the analysis of the Capital Asset Pricing Model, building up to two key results. One, the Mutual Fund Theorem proved by Tobin, describes the optimal portfolios for agents in the economy. It turns out that every investor should try to maximize the Sharpe ratio of his portfolio, and this is achieved by a combination of money in the bank and money invested in the "market" basket of all existing assets. The market basket can be thought of as one giant index fund or mutual fund. This theorem precisely defines optimal diversification. It led to the extraordinary growth of mutual funds like Vanguard. The second key result of CAPM is called the covariance pricing theorem because it shows that the price of an asset should be its discounted expe...

"Gerald and Lily Chow from Hong Kong, agreed to provide Mark Zimny and his company, IvyAdmit, with the hefty retainer believing that he would use the money to make generous donations to schools like Harvard, Yale and Princeton on their behalf and secure their sons' places at top schools. But after two years of continually transmitting funds to Mr Zimny for donations and intense tutoring, the Chows became suspicious of how the 'consultant' was spending the money and a superficial investigation soon revealed that no donations had been made. Mr and Mrs Chow met Mr Zimny in 2007 at an event at the Massachusetts prep school that their oldest son attended. He presented himself as a Harvard professor and elite admissions consultant with several professorial partners who had strong connections...

• Last year, I took yet another risk when I started publicly and assertively challenging the merits of the Harvard Tamil Chair. I say this because when I raised the issue, almost all Tamil people I spoke with expressed solidarity with Harvard and found my views too provocative. • So I decided to call for a debate with the proponents of the Chair. The organizers of SI3 Conference in IIT Madras tried to bring in opponents for me to debate, but this was not easy. Eventually, a Tamil media man came forth and we had an amicable debate at SI3. • He confirmed that he is pro-Dravidian, and a supporter of the Harvard Tamil Chair. But by the end of our conversation, he was hedging his position because it became clear that he and others supporting the chair had not done their homework, and had rushe...
