The above three

is for investment, the income approach seems more suitable, whereas for
individual use, the sales comparison approach is more acceptable. Another

About $4 trillion is currently invested in U.S. domestic equity mutual funds, making
them a fundamental part of the average U.S. investor’s overall portfolio. Since about 90%

passive benchmarks. For example, Wermers (2000) ﬁnds that the average U.S. domestic
equity fund underperforms its overall market, size, book-to-market, and momentum
benchmarks by 1.2%/year over the 1975–1994 period.
