Should Investors Create Their Own Target-Date Fund? They could do better, much better.

On October 2, Dr. Horstmeyer, a professor of finance at George Mason University,  reported the results of a study for the Wall Street Journal titled Should Investors Create Their Own Target-Date Fund?

Target date funds, usually mutual funds or exchange-traded funds, invest with an increasingly conservative asset allocation as the target date approaches. There are over 2000 of them. They consistently underperform the Monday Morning approach to investing.

For a successful investment strategy, asset allocation is more important than stock selection or market timing. We will deal with this important subject in a webinar on Sunday, March 6, 2022, at 7:30 PM. Please mark that in your calendar.
