Why are there more funds for pension funds and private equity firms than for traditional assets?
The average return for the S&P 500 over the past three years is 8.5%, according to Bloomberg data.
This compares with the average annual return for equities over the same period of time, which averaged 8.2%.
The S&s index has outperformed the S.&.
stocks index by nearly 2,000%.
The performance has been especially impressive for mutual funds, which have outperformed both stocks and bonds over the last few years, with the index hitting an all-time high in 2016 and 2017.
The S. &B fund, for example, has more than tripled its market value since the beginning of 2017.
“It’s a little bit unusual that you’d be seeing more returns for traditional funds than for pension and private-equity funds,” said David L. Bernstein, head of the fund at S&am Capital Advisors.
“But it’s not unusual for the market to go up when it wants to.”
A lot of people are putting money in mutual funds over equities, said David K. Cohen, a managing partner at The Bernstein Group.
That’s why Bernstein is betting on pension funds to outperform equities in coming years.
For the past few years mutual funds have been the dominant investment option for people buying a home.
But those same funds are not expected to outperse the S & ;amp;S index in coming decades, according to Bernstein.
The funds are betting that they can provide better returns than the S .& ;AMP stocks index, which has been doing even better than equities.
Bernstein said that the average mutual fund returns over the long term are about 5% higher than the average return of the S;amp ;S index over the longer term.
And he expects mutual funds to have a better return on their investments than equity funds for the foreseeable future.
“I think you’re going to see pension funds outperforming equities for the next several decades,” Bernstein said.
“There are a lot of investors who believe that equities are going to have an outsize impact on the economy in the next couple decades.
So that’s where the pension funds are going.”
The fund’s index, on the other hand, has been a drag on the market.
In 2017, it was trading at a market-cap of just over $1.5 trillion.
That puts it below the $1 trillion market cap of the Dow Jones Industrial Average.
It’s also below the index of global stocks.
Bernstein believes that retirement-fund managers are also in a bit of trouble.
Retirement accounts are the most popular investment vehicle for people, and they have been a big driver of the market since the Great Recession, he said.
But it’s been hard for fund managers to find new ways to earn returns.
The fund market has been particularly volatile, with funds losing nearly $1 billion every day over the course of 2016.
The reason for this is that they have to make a profit on each share sold.
That means that they are often forced to hold more shares than they can possibly sell, or to use funds that are not profitable for the manager to invest in.
“The problem is that the fund managers are being overpaid by the fund companies, who are taking a huge amount of risk and making a profit at the expense of the investor,” Bernstein told CNBC.
Bernstein’s advice to investors: “Buy a fund that’s underperforming the market.”
Bernstein said he’s bullish on equities and would not hesitate to take a risk on a fund.
“They have a lot to offer to investors,” Bernstein added.
“You’re not going to be better off than you were before the crisis.”
The only way to beat the S ;amp ;BS index, he added, is to buy a fund with a better price target than the index itself.
The Bernstein fund, which is backed by hedge fund manager David Einhorn, has seen a lot more than its share price rise over the years.
The hedge fund has made some big bets, including buying a controlling stake in Apple Inc. back in 2000.
But the fund has also been more successful at other businesses.
In the early 2000s, the fund bought a controlling interest in Apple’s stock.
It made the move only after it realized the market was overvalued, Bernstein said, adding that it was a risky move.
“If you buy a stock and it goes up, the market’s going to go down,” Bernstein continued.
“And you’ve got to make the right decision.
If you want to buy Apple stock at a price that you can’t make a good return on, you’ve lost a lot.”
The Bernstein hedge fund had a tough time making money from its purchase of Apple stock, however.
It lost nearly $800 million in its first decade of ownership.
Bernstein and his partners are now focusing on investing in other businesses, including biotech, energy and tech companies
