If you achieve your goals (getting kids thru college, becoming financially independent, retiring, etc.) do you care how your investment returns compare to some arbitrary index?
I would certainly hope not.
Maybe your investment returns beat an investment benchmark, but you did not meet your goals.
How could that happen?
- Maybe you did not save enough money.
- Maybe you did not save in the right places.
How do you evaluate your financial plan?
Ask yourself these two questions:
- Do I understand my plan?
- Am I making progress towards my goals?
All investing involves risk including loss of principal. No strategy assures success or protects against loss.
