    Has anybody practical experience with copycat investing / cloning portfolios of successful (value) investors?

    The key idea:
    - Investors that manage $100+ million must report the stocks which they bought/sold quarterly.
    - You can look at the portfolios of the most successful value investment funds (of the last 20 years) and just copy/clone them given you can get the stocks for about the same price which isn't always but quiet often the case.

    If you become a decent value investor yourself instead of trying to find stocks on your own you can just analyze the picks of very successful value investors with proven track records and if the stocks make sense to you, you invest.

    While there are things that have to be considered the concept makes logical sense to me.
    I read a couple of articles that explain the reasons why a strategy like this might fail and pretty much of these "mistakes" can be avoided.

    Now my question to the experienced investors on the forum, what is the catch? While it makes logical sense it just seems to easy of a strategy for beating the market as a retail investor.

    From my limited knowledge about this topic:

    If someone is managing 100+ mil he probably isn't looking for crazy returns.

    But as its a lot of money, those small returns make sense.

    The amount of money an "average" person would invest wouldn't justify the return over the possible risk.
