But that doesn't mean she wants to manage everything forever. And I'm in that same boat. Amen.So we shouldn't hire a money pro because they aren't immortal? If mine goes toes-up I'll shop again. If I'm senile I won't know to care, will I? By the time I'm old and feeble it'll all be in boring and safe crap anyway....I think a professional can be a big help even to someone who's already saavy because you can discuss the pro's and cons of your investment options using the same language - mine is happy she doesn't have to explain every single term to me, your advisor should LOVE it that you know the market! If they don't, that's a bad sign. When I talk to mine we just short-hand it. WHERE did one poster get some outrageous 4% figure? I pay mine $120 a year in fees to manage my funds. And answer the occasional question and balance my 401K. My pro saved me more on taxes my first year than she charged me.
