Are you Saving and Investing for your retirement and diversifying your portfolio? Savvy investors scrutinize investment costs; current performance & returns; long-term performance & returns; and dividend distribution of income and/or capital gains.

Making a retirement investment? One of the most important considerations is to make “decisions based on facts”.  It is easy to make unsubstantiated claims of investment returns. But, when exceptional mutual fund performances and returns are placed in your hands, it is an opportunity knocking. It's never too early to save for retirement.

An excellent way to build and maintain retirement wealth is to invest in traditional Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA).  Mutual fund investments should have gains in good times and minimal losses in bad times.  All income and capital gains received are tax deferred until the age of 701/2. All distribution must be reinvested and not withdrawn.  Mutual funds are security investments of companies, example Vanguard or Fidelity, that collect funds from the investor and pool the assets for the purpose of building a portfolio of securities as defined in the established objectives. Mutual fund objectives are categorized: Large-Cap, Small-Cap, Mid-Cap, Multi-Cap, Equity Income, Balanced, Bonds, etc. All pertinent facts such as performances, returns and distributions are found in the mutual fund's prospectus.
