Which, if I recall correctly, beats something like 80% of the financial advisers out there.
I think what you might be trying to quote is the performance of the S&P vs actively managed mutual funds.
And even that stat is rather suspect when when considers diversified alternatives. From 2002 - 2012, the best performing asset class to buy would have been MSCI EME with an average return of nearly 17%. REITs were second at almost 12%. The S&P was further down the list below R2000, and EAFE.
Perhaps more imporantly, the S&P was BELOW a diversified mix of:
10% Russell 2000
30% Barc Agg
5% Market Neutral
5% Commodity Index
With annual rebalancing.
