That was one of the responses we received when we asked our newsletter readers about the investing questions they’d always wanted answered. It’s a great question because it reflects some of the key things that any investor should think about when considering their options. It’s not an easy question to answer, though, because there is no single answer that’s right for everyone and because all the elements are linked.
Each person has different priorities when it comes to the charges they’re prepared to pay, how much time they want to spend monitoring and controlling their investments, and what they would consider a ‘good performance’. However, thinking about what you want in these areas can go a long way towards helping you find the investment approach that’s right for you.
