I'm an embarrassed "latecomer" to investing.I have a 403b/TSA Variable, of which I just began taking the maximum monthly amount, deducted to the following: Janus Growth-20%, Janus Worldwide Growth-15%, Fidelity Variable Products Fund Growth-10%,Fidelity Variable Products Fund 11,Index 500-25%,Alger American Growth-20%,and Alger American Leveraged AllCap-10%
I find it very difficult to follow and evaluate these funds. Any opinions/suggestions on how I have them allocated? I have A Vanguard 500 Index fund on my own, however, my maximum TSA deduction allows me little income to put into that fund. Final question, should I continue the maximum TSA, or reduce it, and put the money into Vanguard? I am 58 years old and plan to retire in two years, no wife,no kids, no parents, house will be paid off, and no bills!
Thanks for your patience, I hope to receive some suggestions
