Your Value: Human Insight with Robo Tech
A traditional or Roth IRA is a great place to start for tax advantages based on your income. After you meet the maximum annual contribution limit, you should consider an individual taxable account for additional growth potential and flexibility. You can diversify risk with ETFs.
Five key concepts for portfolio allocation include:
- Diversify your risk (example: use ETFs)
- Consider your time horizon (example: gradually reduce volatility exposure)
- Prioritize your goals (example: ensure funds are liquid when you need them)
- Leverage your tax obligations (example: Roth IRA conversion vs. taxable account)
- Control your principal (example: refuse to fall prey to fear and forfeit your balance with an annuity)
You probably want to find someone who is both competent and cares about you and your goals. Unbiased reviews can help. Consider making a brief list of qualities you want in an advisor, then search or interview your candidates so you are comfortable with moving forward. As a head start, you may want an advisor who has the following qualities:
- Heart of a teacher (willing to provide free general education)
- Independent (free from quotas or restricted solutions)
- Fee-based (not tied to incentives or commissions)

While a 457(b) may have a higher catch-up contribution limit (3 years before retirement), a 403(b) will often have much better investment options. A 401(a) typically has less flexibility and usually is more beneficial to an employer versus an employee. Note that a managed ETF normally has advantages over managed mutual funds.
Thank you for your service! A great way to invest in real estate without the headache of property management is a fund that contains REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts). These funds invest your money into real estate projects and you can simply enjoy the returns. No renters or maintenance hassle! This can be managed for you in an ETF portfolio to diversify risk.
