Tim Maurer quotes

This was their first taste of investing, and then they got clobbered – so I don't think you should just be aggressive because you're young. The challenge now for millennials is to get kick-started in investing – they are less keen than their parents or grandparents. Time horizon is a factor to be considered, but it's not the only factor and it's not even the primary factor in how you should be allocating your portfolio – it's more on your willingness to assume risk and your gut-check test to see whether you can take the hit when the markets go down.feedback

The chances are decent that if they're taking retirement income from their IRA, it'll probably be more than the RMD.feedback

That applies to the political realm.feedback

You can bet correctly on the presidential election, but the potential damage from guessing wrong about what will happen [in the financial markets] is much greater than any benefit you'll likely see.feedback

Why waste brain space on what might or might not happen?feedback

Of course, I'm glad to see that the IRS is giving a break to those who might otherwise halve their retirement savings due to the punishing taxes and penalties assessed to early 401(k) withdrawals, whether accidental or purposeful. Eliminate the worry and just get it done as soon as possible.feedback

An increasing number of 401(k) plans do default to options that may include automatic components designed to help investors help themselves, but you should never assume that your plan a) does have 'autopilot' options, or b) that any automatic default options are actually right for you. Your corporate retirement plan doesn't know your individual destination, so don't trust an autopilot feature that may well take you somewhere else.feedback

There is no better investment than one that earns 'free money,' like in the case of a 401(k) company match. But beyond the matching contribution, there may be numerous reasons why a traditional or Roth IRA – or even a liquid, taxable investment account – is a preferable savings vehicle.feedback

Jul 14 2016

Exactly who bears the numerous costs of corporate retirement plans varies widely, but there are no free lunches – or 401(k) plans.feedback

Jul 14 2016

The number of investment options in 401(k) plans continues to fall, based on research that suggests savers are more likely to make these important investment decisions if the selections available to choose from aren't vast enough to be overwhelming. However, fewer options doesn't necessarily equate to better options, and some plans still have a very large selection pool that demands due deliberation.feedback

Jul 14 2016

You may be in a different tax bracket when you retire, but you also may not be, and the primary determinant of whether or not that happens rests in hands other than your own. Therefore, our efforts are better spent focusing on what we can control – like saving money and investing wisely – than in betting on what future tax rates will be.feedback

Jul 14 2016

There are just about as many 401(k) fee schedules as there are 401(k) plans; some are exorbitant, but others are surprisingly reasonable. Although new rules and disclosures will hopefully lead to more uniformity, each plan is separately negotiated between parties that may include custodians, carriers, mutual fund families, financial salespeople, record keepers, corporate fiduciaries and, not so 'unoccasionally,' golf buddies.feedback

Jul 14 2016

You – or your heirs – are going to be required to pay tax on 401(k) savings at some point, whether it's now (in the form of Roth 401(k) contributions) or later (in the form of tax-deductible traditional 401(k) contributions). You didn't think the IRS was going to be that generous, did you?feedback
