Part IV. Crafting Your Fund Portfolio

Crafting Your Fund Portfolio

In this part ...

You start building a portfolio of funds to help you meet your goals. I explain the fundamentals of putting a portfolio together, including such concepts as asset allocation, buy and hold versus market timing, and selecting tax-appropriate funds. I recommend the best money market, bond, and stock funds for the job. And just to make sure that I don't leave you hanging, I pull it all together for you in a chapter that shows you how real people construct fund portfolios and fit funds into their overall financial plans. The last chapter of this part walks you through the paperwork you need to fill out to build your fund portfolio.
