Investment Rules For Retirement

Monday, June 10, 2013 - 9:44 AM

Good rules on cost reduction, re-balancing, bonds coverage reduction, and of course; indexing.

As for actively-managed funds and index funds, I agree it is hard to beat the indexing for the long term (lowest cost and average performance).  But I still think there exist very few mutual funds that will consistently beat the "average."  If not, all the fund active fund manager will be without a job.  Further, it is hard to take passivity as a way to invest.  I guess I will come around (to submit to indexing) one of these days.  At present, I will stick with my FLPSX/FSCRX.
