Long-term investing is simple — no matter what the ‘experts’ say
That isn’t just in the US either: value investing has beaten growth investing in most countries over the long run.

If you had put a pound into the UK market as a whole in 1955 you would have had £1,070 by 2013. Not bad. Had you tracked the Numis Smaller Companies Index, however, you’d have ended up with £4,907. Again, much better.
