Chris Blais of True North Financial joined in today to talk about sound investment strategies for “Joe the Investor” in a post-Great Recession marketplace.

Ironically, in spite of the pundits on cable news and the headlines of the day, taking a long-term broad-market approach is statistically the best opportunity for making gains. Chris shared the fact that over the last 20 years, investors who stayed in broadly diversified, low-fee funds made about 8.5%. Those who jumped in and out of investments averaged less than 2%.

Today’s Mentionables:

True North Financial

Dalbar Investor Behavior Research – How average investors behave vs. how the market behaves

Morningstar – Great fund research tool that sheds more light on investment fees

    Great job Derek and Chris. In this day and time we can't educate ourselves to much on investing. There are lots of gimmicks out there and it's nice to get back to the KISS rule of investing. I'm a pretty simple person anyway, and was able to understand almost everything you mentioned. I enjoyed your show today. Thanks.
