The Investor's Advocate: Diversity Dilemma

 

Pending Challenges to Conglomeration Could Dismantle Long-Used Strategy Which Fuels Most of 401(k) Growth


Could one of the most successful strategies behind the growth of your retirement plan soon become obsolete? And is so, what exactly will replace it? These intriguing queries are addressed in a new posting called "The Potpourri Paradox" (https://www.howtoinvestblog.net/2021/01/the-potpourri-paradox.html) by Anthony Rhodes, on his popular How To Invest blog ((www.howtoinvestblog.net). Mr. Rhodes is the owner of wealth management firm The Planning Perspective  (www.theplanningperspective.com).

"As far as investment strategies go, I can't think of any which has had more of a direct impact on capital appreciation than this one." he began. "Diversification is the single most important resource in an investors' toolbox, and while the post covers possible alterations on the micro level, it still could have a definitive effect on portfolio growth." he added. "We'll have to wait and see how it all plays out, but for right now, it certainly qualifies as a cause for concern."

Will the possible changes decrease the overall growth rate of your retirement plan? Or, is it all just much ado about nothing? Mr. Rhodes covers all bases within the post.

"This strategy has faced challenges before, and has always emerged intact. But this time may be different." he explained. "New realities are unfolding which it has never encountered, which may make the assumption of business as usual difficult." he added. "If it can adapt to these changes, it will continue to remain the cornerstone investment strategy which it always has been, and if not we'll have to seek out newer alternatives. It's as simple as that." he closed.

The Investor's Advocate: 50 and Counting

  The Advocate Celebrates 50 Posts of "How To Invest" with Extensive Interview with its Creator   The Investor's Advocate: This is a bit belated since you've already passed 50 posts at the time of this writing, but the number is quite a milestone. Did you ever imagine that you'd still be covering this subject for as long as you have? Anthony Rhodes: The great thing about investing is that its universe is so incredibly vast that there's always material to cover. To say nothing about new products and rules which come into play on a regular basis. So, I'm not all that surprised to still be at it today. The difficulty lies in which direction to move within. Should I cover products, strategies or current events? And how to make it all relatable to the average person. This is the motivation and challenge which keeps me going. The Investor's Advocate : To that point, one of the hallmarks of your blog is how it tends to weave subjects which aren't normally
