“The 10 Most Common Mistakes People Make With Their Money…” By: Alan Haft (Part Four)

common-money-mistakes Alan HaftPhil Wassermans partner, Alan Haft, reveals his fourth most common mistake people make with their money. Alan Haft has written many educational books and articles to help retirees navigate through the confusing world of retirement.

Mistake Four:  “Too Much Tax!”

“Have you ever had the paranormal experience of holding a mutual fund that went down in value, only to discover that you somehow wound up owing taxes on it? As strange as it sounds, it could happen. How and why it happens is beyond the scope of this preview, but the bottom line is sad but true — when investing in a managed mutual fund, you have virtually no control of the taxes you pay while holding the fund.

If someone is interested in reducing tax, one of the first things they should ask themselves is whether or not they are investing in managed mutual funds outside an IRA. Investing in managed funds outside an IRA could result in taxable consequences that are beyond your control. As a result, paying taxes each year on a fund only reduces your return and that’s certainly not an efficient way to invest.

How much tax does your fund cause? Your tax return should give you a good idea as to how much tax you’re paying on your funds. Another way of checking out the taxable consequences of holding a fund(s) is to investigate something called “turnover” and Morningstar.com is a good place to research this.

“Turnover” simply means “the amount of times a year the fund manager replaces the portfolio with a different set of stocks.” If the fund manager changes the portfolio once a year, that’s a 100% turnover. If the fund manager changes the portfolio two times a year, that’s a 200% turnover, if the manager changes
half the portfolio that’s a 50% turnover, etc., etc.. Each time the fund manager “turns over” a portfolio, that usually leads to one
thing: paying tax, and in some cases, too much tax.

Certainly, there are some funds out there that are more tax efficient than others, but as far as I’m concerned, the simplest way to reduce taxes on managed mutual funds is to invest in the indexes instead.

Remember: an index is a “passive” investment. There is no one trading stocks within the index and given there are typically few trades (if any) done within the index, there is often zero “turnover” that would cause taxable events from taking place. Investing in the indexes often puts you in control of when you pay the tax, not a fund manager out there making those decisions for you.”

Diversifying Your Portfolio

Phil Wasserman, Sarasota FL.

“In uncertain times, you need to diversify a portfolio to protect your capital, and capture the upside of markets. When you diversify you look toward uncorrelated or lesser correlated items. Diversification allows you to spread your money into different stable economies around the world. Diversification is what helps to protect you and your money for the future. The “Rainbow Strategy” allows for you to never have to guess or worry about global growth. A Rainbow Strategy spreads capital between different markets around the world. Talk with your financial planner about how advantageous this strategy is to your portfolio.”

The Top Ten Retirement Planning Tips

  9. Enjoy your money. After all, you cant take it with you.

Accelerated Benefits for Annuities

Today it is common for annuities to allow for accelerated benefits to pay for the following:

  • Home Health Care Rider
    •  If you require Home Health Care Services by a licensed Home Health Care provider as a result of being impaired in performing two out of six activities of daily living.
  • Nursing Home Benefit Rider
    •  If you are confined to a licensed nursing home for more than 60 days, and your confinement begins at least one year after the annuity’s effective date.
  • Terminal Illness Benefit Rider
    •  If a licensed physician certifies that you have been diagnosed with an illness or condition that causes your life expectancy to be less than one year.

These powerful benefits are usually included at no cost, although not all annuities have them.

“The 10 Most Common Mistakes People Make with Their Money,” written by Phil Wasserman’s partner, Alan Haft. In this section we are going to show you the third mistake people make with their money.

 Mistake Number Three; “Using the Wrong Gas.”

Let’s go back to my very simplistic “diversified”
portfolio outlined in Mistake #2:
1. US Stocks: 20%,
2. International Stocks: 20%,
3. Technology: 20%,
4. Real Estate: 20%,
5. Flavors of the Day: 20%.
If the above portfolio met the investor’s requirements for diversification, the next logical step would be to select “something” to represent each sector within the portfolio. The “something” I’m referring to basically comes down to one of three possible choices:

1. Rocket fuel: Individual stocks,
2. Watered-down fuel: Managed Mutual Funds
3. Diesel Fuel: Stock indexes
