Alfa SOFIX Index - strategy
Alfa SOFIX Index follows a passive investment strategy, which is typical for index funds. The main difference between passive and active strategy is that actively managed funds portfolio managers' efforts are focused on trying to find the right stock and the right time for their purchase, so to beat the market, while the index fund simply "buy the market". This produces absolute transparency and lower costs in the most efficient management. In the index fund price of the shares is not determined by the skills of the manager, and the movement of the market as a whole. So you may be sure that no subjective decisions, the portfolio of the fund is predetermined, and no extra management costs.

Alfa SOFIX Index invests in shares of companies traded on the Bulgarian Stock Exchange and included in the stock index SOFIX. It is calculated daily and includes 15 leading public companies, ranked according to their liquidity and market capitalization. The share of this type of stock is up 100% of the assets. The investment strategy of Alfa SOFIX Index does not include costly analyzes of companies in an attempt to find undervalued stocks at the right moment to beat the market. Alfa SOFIX Index simply follows the movement of the market and wins the costs for investors are the lowest, and transparency is greatest.

However, does following the market bring better results? Studies comparing the growth of broad market indices in the U.S. and Europe, with average growth of the portfolio of actively managed funds show that the long-term growth indices significantly outpaced the growth in actively managed portfolios as management costs further increase the difference. Of course, in the short term , usually the winner is the one actively managed fund. Leaders are often changed and nobody can promise you that you will always be among the first .
