Posted By Ron On December 6, 2011 @ 9:15 AM In Investing,Money | Comments Disabled
Almost a year ago, Gorday Murray, a former bond salesman for Goldman Sachs, passed away from complications resulting from brain cancer.

You’ll need to allocate your assets between varying asset classes: foreign and domestic, equity and debt instruments, real estate and commodities.
Passive investors do better. Read my review of How a Second Grader Beats Wall Street  for more details along those lines. In the book, author Alan Roth details with number after number where investors who constantly tinker with their portfolio get it wrong and do FAR WORSE than the market.
Regularly review your investments and do the unthinkable: shave the profits from your winners and buy more of your losers. This is where you absolutely NEED the unemotional advice and counsel of a financial advisor . Rebalancing forces you to do what the most successful investors do: Buy Low and Sell High!
After spending his life pushing bonds on mutual fund managers, Murray eventually went to work for Dimensional Fund Advisors, a mutual fund company that speaks out against actively managed investments in favor of passively managed portfolios.
Gordon Murray and Daniel Goldie thankfully were able to finish the book before Murray passed away in January of 2011.
