I should also say that the sole purpose for managing your own money is that you save whatever management fees you may pay otherwise. People that use asset managers also know "where their money is" at all times. The money is going to be under custody somewhere. There are many asset manager relationships where you will be included in your allocation discussions.

I think I have a pretty "solid education in this". I have been managing my own money for 17 years and am comfortable in doing so. But it's always good to receive others views and input...but am simply reluctant to give up control. As I have views on the Mkt and know my own risk tolerance better than some pm. But as I said there is a guy I sit down with once a year to review my portfolio allocation...but candidly we have strongly opposing views on things. But I still feel good that I have listened to his view. always am interested in hearing other views even if I disagree with them.

FYI - I did it! I retired 2 weeks ago...took me longer than I wanted but it finally arrived. I'm now focused on the next steps. Want to thank everyone that responded to this thread a few years ago and helped me think through things!

I assume the "GoBlue" is Michigan. Good to see a UM alum succeed.


Have the day you deserve, and let Karma sort it out.
