I’m not one to pay buckets of money for custom tailored clothing. Just like many of you, I go to a store, pick out my general size and buy the nearest fitting clothes available. I would enjoy having my shoulders, waist, neck etc. measured to the quarter inch, then have my clothes fit perfectly, but that just isn’t practical in my mind.
However, when it comes to investing, you should always have a plan tailored to your lifestyle and financial standing. While any vehicle could fit you, it may not be appropriate for you. Age, health, income, lifestyle, and risk appetite are some of the many factors that determine how you should invest.
There are rarely situations where a single investment is appropriate for a wide range of demographics. Unlike that large sweatshirt that virtually anyone can throw on, investment vehicles are not one size fits all. It takes meticulous understanding and measuring of each individual’s unique situation to find the most fitting investments.
So when it comes to your investments, make sure you’re not just following this quarter's fashionable trends and investing in a one-size-fits-all vehicle. Talk to an advisor who will take into account all the various factors of your situation and then tailor a plan that fits you perfectly.
