According to Morningstar, only 14% of the top 100 mutual fund managers in a given year were able to repeat their performance the following year. Over a
five year period, 97% of the professional money managers underperform their index after fees and taxes! There's probably not an industry that is so
overpaid for providing so little.
Yet most investors continue paying investment management fees that, while seemingly small, easily siphon away 33% of their wealth over 15 years.
If the supposed pros cannot "beat the market," how do wealthy families and elite institutions make such good returns? By using a simple method called asset allocation. In fact, they've been part of an investing revolution based upon asset allocation for years. They know that how you divide up your money between stocks, real estate, and bonds, is responsible for 90% of investment returns - and that's where they focus.
Then why don't all investors use asset allocation? Because Wall Street brokers, financial advisors, and the media must make sure you keep thinking that investment pros provide great value. Otherwise, everyone - even you - would start taking control of their investing and it would destroy the multi billion dollar investment advisor industry.
