Check out my other blogs for strategies and new investment tactics and concepts. Bigger can be be cheaper but not always better. Keep in mind paying just a little more for good service pays for itself many times over. If you pay a company an extra 1 percent in commissions and they save from making a 5 percent mistake or help you gain an extra 10% it’s worth it.

Like in Vegas, you, and most people, can hit it big every now then. However, the Fund Managers have such an advantage in information, key contacts and vast resources over individual investors it’s not even close. Like in Vegas, you’re best odds are 48.5%. In other words, you lose over time and the house always wins. Mutual Funds even the playing field for the individual investor in two ways. They spread your micro-economic risk by spreading your investment over many stocks so if one tanks your overall investment is not devastated and 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. So you need to decided 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 companies 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.
