Diversification and Dollar-Cost Averaging: Time-Tested Investment Strategies

Investment companies generally offer several portfolios within these funds, each with a different amount of risk. For example, a growth portfolio would hold more stock as a percentage of assets than a moderate growth portfolio. By Barbara O’Neill, Ph.D., CFP®, Rutgers Cooperative Extension, [email protected] military families are faced with investment decisions, such as whether or not to participate in the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) available to service members or fund an IRA for retirement savings or a 529 plan for their children’s college savings. Some are new to investing and may have many questions about how to get started and how to succeed.Two time-tested investment strategies are to diversify and dollar-cost average. Diversification means spreading your money among different investments to reduce the risk of loss from a decline in any one investment. There are several easy ways to diversify investments:Place money in different asset classes (e.g., stocks, bonds, cash, and real estate), a strategy known as asset allocation For more information about diversification and dollar-cost averaging, visit the eXtension Investing For Your Future home study course.

An example is the L fund in the TSP.Dollar-cost averaging is the practice of investing equal amounts of money (e.g., $50) at a regular time interval (e.g., monthly), regardless of whether the value of investments is moving up or down. A common example is the amount that workers contribute to a tax-deferred retirement plan each pay period. Another is monthly deposits that are automatically debited from a bank account and transferred into a mutual fund investment plan.Dollar-cost averaging reduces average share costs over time. Investors acquire more shares in periods of declining share prices and fewer shares in periods of higher prices. When dollar-cost averaging is practiced over long time periods, time diversification reduces investment risk. A simple illustration of dollar-cost averaging can be found in the table below. The average cost per share is $7.06 ($300 in deposits divided by 42.50 shares).Illustration of Dollar Cost Averaging 42.50 Purchase well-diversified stock and bond index funds that track broad market indiceslast_img read more

Legends recognised

first_imgBy BEN HARRISTouch Football Australia (TFA) recognised six legends of the sport at the Australian Touch World Cup jersey presentation dinner on Monday evening.Bill Ker and Lou Tompkins received life memberships to TFA, while Adam Foley, Giselle Martin, Greg Young and Tony Trad became the latest members of the TFA Hall of Fame.Each person has put countless hours and devotion into the sport they love.Lou Tompkins has been an integral member of the referee arm.He has been on the Federation of International Touch referees’ panel since the 1995 Touch World Cup and was TFA national director of referees from January 2005 to January 2010.“It makes me very humble to join the list of people who have received life membership before me. They are people I respect greatly, contribute greatly to the sport and I feel very humble with that,” Tompkins said.“At the same time, I’m also very proud. I’m proud because this is a recognition not just of my effort, but the recognition of the efforts of every volunteer.”Bill Ker’s involvement in touch football has been extensive.From starting out as the vice-president of Gold Coast Touch in their inaugural year (1976) to climbing to the top of the Australian Touch Association as their chief executive before settling in as the secretary-general of the Federation of International Touch.Ker was one of the three men who initiated the National Touch League concept.“I am humbled and excited to receive this from an organisation that I have grown to love. Just like the sport,” Ker said about his life membership.Former world No.1 referee Adam Foley was the 27th person inducted into the TFA Hall of Fame.Foley has 70 international caps next to his name for the whistle-blowers including 34 World Cup appearances.Giselle Martin has been a key member of Australian touch since making her debut for the green and golds in 1993.She has 34 international caps next to her name, as well as representing NSW from 1995 to 2014.Her record in the National Touch League has seen her play in six finals for the Sydney Mets, winning three of them.“I’m honoured and humbled to be next to some legends of the sport,” Martin said.Greg Young will add to his international caps this week at the Touch World Cup but he was taken aback when he was named in the Hall of Fame.He was involved in Australia’s inaugural touch football team in 1985 with cap No.5.“I’ve been in touch since 1977. It has been a long journey but it has been fantastic. I have made heaps of friends along the way. It has bettered my life in many ways,” Young said.Incumbent Australia men’s open coach Tony Trad has mentored many of Australia’s greatest touch players.He has been heavily involved in Australia’s international campaigns since 1999 and has 70 caps.Apart from his induction, Trad was surprised when he spotted his wife and children in the crowd.“When did you get up here? I just spoke to you on the phone,” he said to his wife Trish, and children Jacob and Olivia.“This game has been wonderful to me and I owe it everything and it owes me nothing. I have been blessed.”Related LinksWorld Cuplast_img read more
