Synopsis

'A terrific read' Gregory Zuckerman, special writer at the Wall Street Journal and author of The Man Who Solved the Market


'A rollicking great yarn, replete with admirable heroes, political infighting, fascinating diversions and unexpected triumphs' William Cohan, special correspondent at Vanity Fair and author of The Last Tycoons


'A wonderfully engaging romp through the last half century of market news' Rana Foroohar, global business columnist at the Financial Times and author of Don't be Evil


'A tour de force' Gillian Tett, chair of the editorial board and US editor-at-large at the Financial Times and author of Fool's Gold


'Engaging and thought-provoking' Mohamed El Erian, Chief Economic Advisor of Allianz and author of When Markets Collide


Index funds are the most widely influential investment vehicles available. They have revolutionised investing by saving millions of people billions of dollars in fees that would otherwise have gone to fund managers. It is no exaggeration to say that the rise of passive investing is probably one of the most consequential financial inventions of the past half-century, by rewiring markets and reshaping the finance industry.


Yet some detractors say that index investing is an insidious disease and, with their rapid expansion and grip on the financial market, index funds may have cataclysmic consequences that we aren't even aware of yet. What might the socio-economic risks of wide-spread passive investing be? What are the longer-term consequences to capitalism? And what does the future look like for the investment landscape?


Through exclusive interviews with key industry giants, Robin Wigglesworth, the Financial Times' New York-based markets editor, reveals the thrilling and untold history of the revolutionists behind the invention of index funds and investigates one of the most pressing financial uncertainties of our time.





 


Robin Wigglesworth is the Financial Times' global finance corrospondent based in Oslo, Norway. He focuses on the biggest trends reshaping markets, investing and finance across the world.
