An Innovative way to take back control of your 401(k)
Discover a brand new approach to investing your workplace retirement plan account.
You can increase your chances of having more money during retirement by making investment choices with skill and care. Retirement investing does not have to be like throwing darts at a dartboard while blindfolded.
In order to supercharge your 401(k), you should ideally start with the following three tips:
When it comes to the market, we all know that the only constant is change. So, the stock or mutual fund that you chose last year – or even last quarter – may or may not necessarily still be going in the right direction for you. But having an expert take a look at your account on a quarterly basis, and rebalancing when necessary, can keep you on course, both now and down the road.
Avoiding TDFs (Target Date Funds)
Many companies’ 401(k) plans will use Target Date Funds, or TDFs, as their go-to, or “default” option. That’s because TDFs will automatically reallocate as you move through different life stages. But, who ever said that a one-size-fits-all investment works well for everyone? The reality is that Target Date Funds will often underperform and do not do a good job of managing downside risk during tough markets. Is that a risk that you want to take with your retirement assets?
Getting Independent Advice
In most cases, employers “help” their 401(k) plan participants by handing them a brochure that goes over their investment alternatives. But that’s about as far as it goes. So, it’s likely that most – or all – of your 401(k) investments weren’t very well researched before they were chosen for your account. Imagine, though, if each and every dollar in your 401(k) account was invested, based on a strategy that was developed for your specific goals and objectives. That’s what getting independent advice can do.

All investment strategies have the potential for profit or loss. Changes in investment strategies, contributions or withdrawals, and economic conditions may materially alter the performance of your portfolio. Different types of investments involve varying degrees of risk, and there can be no assurance that any specific investment or strategy will be suitable or profitable for a client's investment portfolio. There are no assurances that a client’s portfolio will match or outperform any particular benchmark. Asset allocation and diversification do not ensure or guarantee better performance and cannot eliminate the risk of investment losses.
