Jumping to Conclusions



If you said "Jumping To Conclusions" you would be like most, your brain is conditioned to fill in the gaps when information is missing.  When making investment decisions this automatic gap filling can be hazardous to your wealth.  Many financial experts jump to conclusions on what products or investments are best for you, and likewise you jump to conclusions on the performance, risk, appropriateness and value of those investments.

Many investors never consider alternative investments as a viable option to a balanced portfolio because their investment adviser does not present them (gap).  If you have jumped to the conclusion that alternative investments are not good because they are not offered in traditional wall street offerings, I suggest you become an informed investor and make your own determination.

The phrase that was partially covered up is revealed at the bottom of this post. Now I will  bet you were quite confident of your answer prior to having all of the information revealed. If you were incorrect on this simple phrase, how incorrect are your perceptions on your investments?
If you would like a clear understanding of the world of investments and how you can take control with more information let us know, we would love to help you see the full picture.
