Invest in Index Funds

Why do investors pay active fund managers high fees to manage their investments when more than 75% of all fund managers fail to beat the S&P 500 on an annual basis? Don't let your gains slip away by paying these high fees for underperformance. Invest in index funds instead of mutual funds.

I invest with Vanguard and balance my portfolio among a few index funds including the Vanguard Total Stock Market Index (VTSMX), Vanguard Total International Stock Index (VGTSX), and Vanguard Total Bond Market Index (VBMFX).

It's time to put the odds in your favor. You can create your own diversified investment portfolio with only a few index funds. Start today.
