These days we were discussing whom you have to beat if you are trying to earn money in the stock market. I think the players are
- private stock holders
- actively managed investment funds
- maybe other players whom I don't know
So my question is: What share of e.g. the whole Dow Jones, MSCI World, etc. is owned by these groups? Are there any statistics or estimations?
I am aware that you can also earn money by just buying and holding shares so you will not "really compete" with the others, but this is not part of the question. I am just wondering about the shares of these players.
