John Bogle’s Sense on Cents

Posted by Larry Doyle on June 27, 2013 5:50 AM |

When it comes to investing, how does one get ahead?

Do not start from behind, that is, do not invest in funds or investments that come with a variety of fees, charges, loads, and assorted other excessive expenses. Think of it as the equivalent of not having to run extra laps in a race of any distance.

Who espouses this same basic principle of keeping costs down and other great investment practices?  One of Wall Street’s legendary investors, John Bogle, who recently provided words of wisdom for both investors and advisors alike in a brief 90 second clip.

Thanks to Investment News for bringing us Bogles’s sense on cents

The best gifts are those that can be shared. I hope those who listen to Bogle will do just that and send along his sage advice to others.

Navigate accordingly.

    (Reuters) – At least three wealth management firms that market themselves as objective financial advisers are getting payments for investing their clients’ money in certain mutual funds, a practice that even some of these firms say could create conflicts of interest.
    The firms, known as registered investment advisers, are typically paid by clients with fees tied to the growth or contraction of client assets, and not to specific products. But Fidelity Investments and Charles Schwab Corp are paying these financial advisers as much as 0.25 percent of the assets that their clients put into no-transaction-fee mutual funds.

    John Boggle is a very decent man.
