One of the key challenges for amateur investors is the attraction to RISING PRICES. When the prices of most consumer goods such as gasoline or vegetables rise, people tend to either cut back or find a substitute. However, with financial assets, the opposite seems true. Many investors are attracted to a stock whose price has risen more than one whose price has fallen. This tendency often results in poor investment performance. It is difficult for an individual investor to effectively construct and maintain a portfolio that is properly diversified, minimizes fees and taxes, avoids overlapping assets, and stays in its lane without emotion. THAT'S why in retirement, hiring a professional to manage your assets with a clear WRITTEN strategy is so wise. Today, we'll review the most practical and pragmatic approach to your investments, then Shelley Grandidge joins us for the Q & A. Don't miss it....MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!

Strenuous, stressful work can wear people down and damage their health. In that case, RETIRING can relax and reinvigorate their lives. They finally have time to follow their passions and pursue activities that enrich their lives. But for others, the risks of retirement can involve bad health and even early death, says the Wall Street Journal. Although you might think that retiring would give a person more time to go to the gym, watch their diets, take longer walks, and work on their physical fitness, the opposite often occurs. Many retirees become sedentary and watch too much TV. They eat too much. They drink too much. They smoke too much. And, sometimes, they die too soon. Researchers find that without the purpose of fulfilling work, many retirees can feel adrift and become depressed. We'll review the Journal's statistics on retirement that may SHOCK you!

So, ...what factors drive return-on-investment in the stock market? We know that the stock market is all about supply and demand, but researchers have isolated multiple factors that, when properly employed, show evidence of increasing investment returns over time. Isolating and separating those factors may put an investor in the position of outperforming benchmarks like the S & P over time—or matching benchmarks with less risk—which is just as important. Global markets are made up of dozens of asset classes and millions of individual securities…making it challenging to understand what really matters for your portfolio. Today, we'll review in detail what really matters and why you need an asset allocation model built for a new financial environment.
