The lazy person's guide to investing

I make no apology for admitting that in some areas of my life, I am a bit lazy. Don’t get me wrong, I work hard, and I hardly ever watch TV, but I don’t like spending time on things that don’t interest me. And despite what you might think for someone who preaches on this show about investing every week, I’m not even remotely interested in managing my own investments.

I know that some people are, and that’s why I love to give out information, including LHTI, to help those folks. But what if you’re like me? What if you want to take the path of least resistance and still invest according to the best practice of things like asset allocation, managed volatility and all that jazz? This show gives you the lazy person's guide to investing...

In this session, you'll discover:

  1. How to tap into economies of scale
  2. What it is you're really buying when you go off-the-shelf
  3. How and why to keep the costs down
  4. The first thing you need to do when investing this way
  5. Which investment sectors to look in for these types of funds
  6. How to find the right funds
  7. The main measure to filter the available funds
