How much money are you losing due to poor investments?

A recent study finds that individual investors on average underperform the equity markets by roughly 5%!​

The study found that “In 2014, the 20-year annualized S&P return was 9.85% while the 20-year annualized return for the average equity mutual fund investor was only 5.19%, a gap of 4.66%.”​ The 30 year returns as displayed here are even worse!

For the average investor starting with $100,000, this means that over 30 years you may be able to double your money, but if you had invested in a passive S&P 500 ETF, you would have 20x your money!

To put this in perspective, if you invested $100,000 in 1984 in the S&P 500 and earned 11.11%, today (30 years later) you would have $2,358,275. If you started with $100,000 and invested it over the same time period at 3.69%, you (the average investor) would have $296,556. That is a difference of $2,061,719. It should be clear from these numbers that individual investors have a problem.

But you are a much better investor than the average Joe! Right?

You probably are better than average, especially if you found this website. However, studies show we think we are much better investors than we actually are!  The key to good trading knowing exactly how you are doing.

Do you know how well your account is performing?

Congratulations!  You have made money investing in the markets.

Unfortunately, just because your account is increasing in value doesn’t mean you’re a great trader. The markets have been doing very well over the last 7 years and very few individual investors have been able to keep up!

Do you know how your portfolio has performed compared to the market and your peers?

Online brokers don’t make it easy to evaluate your performance. They don’t provide benchmarks that are easy to compare to your own performance or that of your peers. We Do!

So how can you find the comparative performance of your portfolio?

Let an INDEPENDENT service evaluate your trading performance.

Find out how your investments have performed compared to your peers, relevant benchmarks and properly allocated portfolios.

We provide FREE, INDEPENDENT, AUTOMATED, ANONYMOUS evaluations of your portfolios.

But what about the security of my account?

We run an AUTOMATED system that quantitatively analyzes your account without people. And we don’t retain any of your account information! Plus it is FREE so there is no risk to you!

Sounds too good to be true!

It almost is. Again, we will not retain your account information or password. However, if your account has not been performing up to standards, we may provide an advertisement for a low-cost higher-performance alternative investment option (often a low-cost robo-advisor).
