Radio: The Value of Ignoring Your Gone Fishing Portfolio

with No Comments

On February 13, 2018, David John Marotta appeared on Radio 1070 WINA’s Schilling Show to discuss recent market volatility, what you should do in response to the volatility, what Freedom Investing is, and what the Marotta’s Gone-Fishing Portfolios are.

Most of financial news is just noise. As Vanguard Group founder John Bogle said, “The interests of investors are served by… ‘Don’t do something. Just stand there!’” Timing the markets can be a losing strategy. Chasing returns reduces your expected return.

In contrast, rebalancing boosts expected return, and there is no such thing as over diversification.

On this radio show, host Rob Schilling and guest David John Marotta talk about why getting a gone fishing portfolio can help you ignore short term market movements and achieve a market rate of return.
