6 Tax-Saving Tips for Investors

Do you know how much taxes are eroding your investment returns? It could be more than you think. Studies by the Vanguard Group suggest that taxes can erode the net returns of domestic stock funds by as much as two percent annually.

The Beauty of Being Average

If you invest in index mutual funds or ETFs, the best that you can expect to capture are average market returns.

If this doesn’t get you initially excited, it’s no wonder. Average usually doesn’t sell. No one hunts for an average accountant or an average physician.

Nobody gets excited about average test scores or the prospects of eating at an average restaurant.
