Program OverviewInvestor decisions are the result of many factors that involve both the plan design and individual psychological issues such as a person's risk tolerance level or his understanding of the stock market. The vast array of different plan designs, coupled with the numerous investments within each plan, makes the options to investors virtually limitless. Most educational programs talk only about plan design or the psychology of the investor when it comes to making actual choices and not the investments offered within the plan.
This program takes into account the "other" factors such as the tax status of the plan (tax advantaged vs. non-tax advantaged), age of the investor, ultimate goal of the investments, and structure of the plan itself. It discusses how these factors influence the investment choices offered to investors before they factor in their individual likes, dislikes, beliefs, theories, or risk tolerance issues.
Within the context of the current economic situation, panelists will discuss:
Several case studies compare and contrast the investment portfolios of different plans. They also discuss the different money management decisions to be made every day as those "other" factors are influenced by the day-to-day activity of investment markets.
