Are Index Fund Investors Simply Smarter?

sheep

We hear a lot about the low costs of index funds. 

Sure, they outperform most actively managed funds.  As a result, many people assume that those who buy index funds are simply smarter.  But investors’ intelligence can be measured in other ways.  Those that buy high and sell low are fools.  And it appears that more investors in actively managed funds conduct such silly behaviour, compared to their counterparts in index funds.

Top Ten Tips For International School Teachers To Build A Solid Retirement

top10

Many international school teachers don’t think enough about retirement. 

And that’s understandable.  The whole concept can seem confusing. But it isn’t.  And those who fail to plan are planning to fail. That could mean eating dog food instead of gourmet, during your golden years.

So, what are the top 10 tips for international school teachers to build a solid retirement?

I share them at the following site:

Andrew Hallam on The Art Of Charm

the-art-of-charm

No, I’m not sharing how to find a romantic partner.

Instead, I was interviewed by Jordan Harbinger at The Art of Charm, “Where Ordinary Guys Become Extraordinary Men.”

So what’s my contribution to the “extraordinary” part?

Harbinger and I discussed how to manage money.

In Defence of Advisors Who Sell Variable Annuities

no-exit

“How could my financial advisor have done this to me?” 

Many ask this question after they buy a variable annuity. 

You’ve heard that most of these products are nasty. Some say high fees burden them. Others complain that they’re inflexible. They penalize investors who try to sell before a predetermined date.

Wall Street Journal writer Matthias Rieker says that many people file complaints about variable annuity sales. 

Ken Fisher, writing for Forbes, recently called them “scumbag products.” 

But I’m going to defend the advisors selling them.  Somebody has to.

Why Vanguard’s Balanced Index Fund Could Be An Investor’s Panacea

waiter

You’re sitting at a fancy new restaurant.

The ambience is perfect.  “Your taste buds will tango,” says the celebrated chef. 

The back of the menu oozes with promise.

We have award-winning chefs.  We grow our own organic herbs.  

We butcher your meat and catch your fish the second you place an order.

At some point, you’ve eaten where they promise the world–and the meal fell flat. “If only I had a burrito at a roadside stand,” you later grumble. Such disappointments are probably rare.  But in the investment world, rice and beans put most gourmet offers to shame.

An Expat’s Guide To Growing Wealth

 

bankers-yachts 

An out-of-town visitor was being shown the wonders of the New York financial district.  When the party arrived at the Battery, one of his guides indicated some handsome ships riding at anchor.  He said, “Look, those are the bankers’ and brokers’ yachts.”

“Where are the customers’ yachts?” asked the naïve visitor.

Fred Schwed, Where Are the Customers’ Yachts?

 

If you’ve never read an investment book before, chances are you’ve never heard of index funds.  No, your financial advisor won’t likely discuss them.  Index funds are flies in caviar dishes for most financial advisors.  From their perspective, selling them to clients makes little sense.  If they sell index funds, they make less money for themselves.  If they sell actively managed mutual funds, advisors make more.  It really is that simple.

Most expats, however, should be interested in funding their own retirement, not somebody else’s.

The term index refers to a collection of something.  Think of a collection of key words at the back of a book, representing the book’s content.

An index fund is much the same: a collection of stocks representing the content in a given market.

Expats In Norway: Build A Stronger Portfolio With Norwegian Stocks

fjord-norway

Investors in Norwegian stocks keep getting dumped from a chair lift.

Over the past three years, they have risen, fallen, risen and fallen again. Since January, Norwegian stocks have fallen nearly 10 percent. Since November 2010, when GlobalXFunds created an ETF to track the Norwegian market, Norwegian stocks have gained just 2.03 percent.

In contrast, the average global stock is up more than 23 percent.

Should you give up on Norwegian stocks?  Certainly not.

Canadians: Three Good Investment Books You’ve Probably Never Heard Of

graffiti-book

In 1973, three years before Vanguard created its first index fund, Burton Malkiel wrote the classic book, A Random Walk Down Wall Street.

It ruffled plenty of Wall Street suits.

The Princeton economics professor argued that actively managed mutual funds were a waste of money. He said most of them perform poorly compared to their index benchmarks. So when Vanguard created the first index fund in 1976, Mr. Malkiel became one of the firm’s biggest cheerleaders.  

A Random Walk Down Wall Street is in its 10th edition. It has sold more than 1.5 million copies. It might be the world’s best book on index investing – for Americans. Three great guides on this side of the border are Chris Turnbull’s Your Portfolio is Broken: Who’s To Blame And How To Fix It; Keith Matthews’ The Empowered Investor; and Dan Bortolotti’s MoneySense Guide To the Perfect Portfolio.
