Is a Backup Plan a smart move?
You diversify your portfolio already to reduce risk. So in times of uncertainty like these, why not diversify your holding into another mutual fund company or two? Unless you are 100% satisfied with your mutual fund provider or are related to your broker, it makes sense to have a secondary mutual fund provider. Why?
- If your favorite broker leaves, the accurate investment advice drops noticeably all of the sudden or the level of customer
- service drops, you want to have one or two secondary companies already in place to move your money to maximize your return and safety.
- I think it’s better to pit two or three companies against each other. Let them know you are doing it. Then at the end of the year, let them all know the results. This will make them work harder for you. The ones that don’t work hard will speak volumes. Having a company you are paying that is not working as hard as possible for you is not a company you want to trust with your financial life and future lifestyle.
- The profit margins in the mutual fund industry are large. Many companies out there are hungry for new business and you can get some deals. After all, it’s about increasing your wealth to protect your lifestyle and the security of your family.
- Finally, hopefully there will never be a Berny Madoff situation, but are you willing to bet your and your family’s financial life on that? It only takes one or two very smart bad apples behind the scenes to ruin people’s lives forever. Another reason to diversify.
Why Mutual Funds?
Like in Vegas, you and most people can hit it big every now and then. However, the Fund Managers have such an advantage in information, key contacts and vast resources over individual investors it’s not even close. Also like in Vegas, your best odds are 48.5%. In other words, Since they are not even 50%, you lose over time and the house always wins. Mutual Funds even the playing field for the individual investor in two ways:
1. They spread your micro-economic risk by spreading your investment over many stocks so if one tanks your overall investment is not devastated and
2. You let the Fund Manager work for you instead of against you.
This greatly simplifies your job as an individual investor. Now you only have to pick the segment of the global economy that you think will be improving then your mutual fund company, and the fund to meet your goals. So you need to decide if the growth areas will be:
Small Cap, Mid Cap, Large Cap, Bonds, Far East, Pacific Rim, China, Europe, South America, Hi Tech, High Beta, Utilities, High Grade Investment Bonds, Junk Bonds, …….
And what mix of each? You don’t need to be keeping tabs on the latest law suit of XYZ’s consumer division or another company’s inventory level. Let the Fund Managers do that part. They can do it better than you. That’s the benefit of investing in mutual fund companies.
As An Example
Morgan Stanley just announced they are laying off 1,600 workers. According to their website, they have not put out a press release as of 1/10/13 which is odd. I’m sure things are a little crazy there right now, which is my point. However, once they send it out I’m sure it will say something like, “We value our customers and our service to them will not be affected.”
- It’s not just Morgan Stanley, other mutual fund and brokerage companies are reducing expenses including layoffs in 2012/2013 and they will also say something like, “our customer service will not be affected.” Of course, in reality this is virtually impossible.
- If your company’s level of service drops off at no fault of the people you like, it may affect you and your portfolio you have with your current mutual fund provider.
- Some companies will figure it out but most will not and cause you to suffer if yours starts to struggle. You need to consider being proactive by starting relationships with the companies who have figured it out from return, risk and customer service point of view.
- Will your primary brokerage company like the backup plan? Nope but “tuff!” If they know you have researched other companies per below, they may offer you some extra incentive to stay. Hence, using the easy research tool below is an easy way to make and save money.
