Past performance is not indicative of future results

by Gary Moglione

“Past performance is not indicative of future results” is a regulatory risk warning on most investment oriented material that everyone knows but not many people seem to actually implement into their decision making.

This then influences investment flows and ultimately determines whether the fund thrives or is liquidated.
