Or is it?

So many times I’ll meet a new client and they will tell me, “Even though my retirement account at work is totally diversified, I still lost money. Why?”

Was it REALLY diversified?

In this video, I show you how there is so much over-lap among large cap mutual funds in 401k accounts. It’s pretty sobering when I show clients how many of the same names appear over and over in MOST of their large cap funds. Some of the investments mentioned here include the Vanguard Institutional Index fund (VIIIX), the T Rowe Price Equity Income fund (PREIX), the Fidelity magellan fund (FMAGX), the Eaton Vance large Cap fund (EILVX).

Now, any time we are mentioning specific investments in a post or video, I think it is important to mention the following:
Past performance may not be indicative of future results. Therefore, no current or prospective client should assume that the future performance of any specific investment or investment strategy will be profitable or equal to past performance levels.

All investment strategies have the potential for profit or loss. Changes in investment strategies, contributions, or withdrawals may materially alter the performance of your portfolio. Different types of investments involve varying degrees of risk, and there can be no assurance that any specific investment will either be suitable or profitable for an investor’s portfolio.

I mean, that just makes sense, right? Oh, and something else:

If you are relying on a blog post for specific investment advice, you are making a huge mistake. Please speak with an investment adviser before making ANY investment decisions.
