Spring Cleaning Your Investment Portfolio

Mintlife on spring cleaning your retirement portfolios:

If you’re single, your investing life is that much simpler. But don’t you long for someone to practice asset allocation with in your twilight years? Don’t answer that.

That’s funny.

For recommendations, I turned to certified financial planner Allan Roth, author of How a Second-Grader Beats Wall Street and writer of the Irrational Investor blog. You only need three funds, says Roth:

  • A US stock index fund
  • An international stock index fund
  • A total bond market fund

I wish I was gooder at these kinds of things.
