Sometimes you just can’t enjoy your day in the sun.
You see, I was basking in the afterglow of having published Part 3 of my How I Invest series when I randomly received a letter from my company’s 401k advisor — let’s call her Christy. At the outset, I must admit that I have a difficult relationship with Christy. I like her a lot personally. However, I am not a fan of active management, I don’t like trading individual stocks, and I loathe the high fees charged by commercial brokers. You could say that my quarterly meetings with Christy are very tense at times as we debate the merits of passive vs. active management. Sounds exciting doesn’t it?
