Index funds usually contain the same titles at the same weighting as a certain representative stock market index. They are therefore also described as passive investments. Titles are not selected on the basis of return forecasts; only a share index is depicted. For this reason, the fees associated with index funds are much lower than those associated with actively managed funds.
