The Best Approach
The concern for mutual fund investors is keeping stock exposure a bit too high as retirement years get close. When you think about people living longer, the threat of running out of money is a stark reality, especially for those who neglect to invest in their early years.
The best approach for any mutual fund investor is to dedicate a specific amount of one’s earnings into a 401K plan and a brokerage account to maintain a steady capital injection into these accounts. Avoid timing the market and understand that most stock market years tend to be positive. The tough cycles will undoubtedly come, and one can easily allocate a bit less if there is a sense of fear in keeping too much in stocks at an older age.
