In this episode, Owen chats with Robin Bowerman, the Head of Corporate Affairs at Vanguard Australia. Robin is a former journalist, an author and has been with Vanguard Australia since 2003. Vanguard is the world leader in low-cost index funds and exchange traded funds. It has changed the world of finance for almost every Australian, whether we choose to admit it or not. Therefore, Owen's thinks some of the talking points in this episode should be heard and understood by investors of all stripes. Robin and Owen talk about his journey, common failures by smart investors, culture at Vanguard, why almost all active funds underperform over many years and the prospects for index investing going forward. We start with Robin's journey long before he started at Vanguard.
