    Simplifying Your Investment Strategy While Lowering Fees (plus a primer on ABLE Accounts) SB1498

    Simplifying Your Investment Strategy While Lowering Fees (plus a primer on ABLE Accounts) SB1498

    The word is out on using low-cost investments over complex Wall Street strategies (and if you don't believe us, we'll quote SIGNIFICANT studies on today's show). Yet, new expensive products are built every day promising better/faster/more wealth. What do you need to know to simplify your strategy and stay the course? In today's headline segment we'll dive into diversification and keeping your portfolio simple. We'll share why it's important to question more complex strategies, and discuss solutions that wealthy investors truly are using to increase future income streams while keeping things low cost. We'll also shine a light on a popular investment manager who's working directly opposite the trend that we're suggesting, Cathie Wood of ARK Investments. We'll share the wild ride up and our thoughts on her recent issues and disastrous returns.
    We'll also take a call from James, wondering about ABLE accounts. These are wonderful tools for people with special needs who are diagnosed early in life, and can help individuals avoid significant taxes. How do they work? What do you need to know? We'll share.
    Of course, we'll also dive into Doug's amazing trivia question of the day, which shines a light on a high cost investment option: hedge funds...while saving time for a TikTok minute you won't want to miss.
