Are You 40 And Still Not Investing For Your Retirement Plan

By Arthur McCain

There seems to be a lot of confusion about these funds though, as many people do not seem to know what exactly mutual funds are or what they do. We will try our best to give you some insight and answer these questions. Usually when people talk about these funds, they are referring to a professionally managed collective investment scheme that is an amassment of money from a variety of investors which is invested into a verity of investment securities such as stocks, bonds, or commodities (mostly precious metals). Every mutual fund will be supervised and controlled by the fund manager.

You will have many benefits and most likely a high rate of return, coupled with low risks. The hourly investment advisor meets with you and makes some recommendations based on your investment goals. Then he usually steps out of the picture and leaves it up to you to monitor and evaluate your investments. This is probably not what you should want. You should be looking for someone with a more hands on approach. The last type of compensation for a mutual funds advisor is the fee based advisor.

This person is paid an annual fee that is a small percentage of your invest pool. This fee usually ranges from one to two percent. Here the motivation for the investment advisor is help you grow your investment larger, thus he gets a larger fee. It is a good situation for you and the advisor.
