Why do investors miss out on returns?

We analysed the performance of investments against the index, uncovering an alarming disparity. Every year, UK investors are 2.1% behind the benchmark. That discrepancy might not sound like much, but over 15 years that results in a massive 35% underperformance. So, why do investors miss out on returns?

Following on from the report, we've explored the size of this 'chasm' below in our infographic, which shows how far behind UK investors are and explains how they could improve their own financial performance. As we've highlighted, lowering fees and making more robust financial decisions are the keys to unlocking better investment returns.
