Definition of 'Passive Investing'
Investing in a strategy that's designed to match the performance of the market (index fund), but not beat the performance of the market (active management). Passive investors don't believe money managers can beat the market over longer time periods so they are not willing to pay higher fees or be exposed to the higher risk associated with active management.
