For the first two months since I hypothetically invested in affordable mostly managed mutual funds (there are a few index funds where no competitive actively managed fund was available) the funds I picked have outperformed comparable Vanguard Index funds.
Though note that the Index portfolio did slightly better today. I think for a few days on my recent trip the index portfolio pulled ahead.
They are really close though. The big surprise to me has been how poorly the ETFs have performed. I would have thought they would have been more or less in line with the index mutual funds, but they have fallen almost 1% behind.
