Our Investor Value Proposition
- Investing Strategy Tip – Recommend using 2 or 3 mutual fund companies at any one time to create competition for your investing business – Could be a smart investing business move for many
- Lead, follow or get out of the way. Drop the underperforming company and keep upgrading your investment partners over time – That is just good business.
- Use this site to help you gather “investing company information” with just a few clicks (This is NOT for individual stock or investing information – that is your new professional investment advisor’s team’s job.)
Is having multiple investing companies a smart move?
My Investing “real life” Example | Don’t make this same mistake
Being a successful and an experienced investor, I divided my portfolio into three. I managed a third; I let company A manage a third and company B administer a third. Company A and I averaged 13% year over year. While Company B averaged just 2%. Company B was very nice and responsive but did not produce. Then I replaced company B. If I had all of my investments with company B, how would I have to know how poor they actually were compared to my other options? I recommend using two or three companies. Over time, drop the worst one and keep upgrading.
Other Reasons to Diversify to Multiple Companies
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 trusted and 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.
- Make your companies compete so you win. 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. The competition 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 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 lawsuit 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.
An Example Why Having Two Companies Is A Good Idea
When Morgan Stanley 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 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 the return, risk and customer service point of view.
- Will your primary brokerage company like the backup plan? Unlikely. They will want commissions on your whole portfolio. However, most will respect you for dividing your portfolio and making them compete for your business. If they know you have researched other companies per below, they may offer you some extra incentive to stay. Hence, using the quick research tool above is an easy way to make and save money.
