Investment Advice 101 Tutorial Guide

Conventional Investment Advice Is Simple, Convenient, And Easy To Digest – Unfortunately, It Is Also Often Wrong.

Investment Advice ImageOne size does not fit all - not with clothes, relationships, or investment advice.

The generic computer optimizations used by nearly every investment advisor and stock broker to build investment portfolios may be completely wrong for you. The implied assumption is one size fits all, but it's not true.

Studies by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the American Council of Life Insurance show that roughly 95% of Americans retire without financial security. Conventional investment advice isn't working and the results prove it.

"The only thing to do with good advice is pass it on. It is never any use to oneself."-Oscar Wilde

Nothing is wrong with conventional investment advice if the times you live in and your life situation perfectly fit the mold it is designed to model. Unfortunately, for many people seeking to build wealth and financial security the assumptions for the conventional model aren't true.

The reality is there are many alternative approaches to investment advice that are equally as valid as traditional investment advice. It's not so much a question of right or wrong, but rather what will better fit your unique situation?

One size does not fit all, and over-simplified solutions that can fit into a computer algorithm should be suspect. Consider some alternatives to traditional investment advice.
