With investors starting out a new year, many investors want to focus on their financial goals by improving their investment results. Tabar advises individuals to avoid the commodities markets for increasing their returns. It is a volatile and risky area for most people to be. Investing in mutual funds is typically a better approach for most retirement investors.
An alternative to the stock market is to invest in private businesses. Entrepreneurial ventures are on the rise, and many startups turn in to huge successes. Sam recently invested in THINX, a company that makes women’s underwear. The company helps poor women in Africa get some hygiene supplies they need.
Sam Tabar feels that individual investors should diversify their investment portfolios to spread the risk, and have a better chance at overall success. He advises those who have not started investing for retirement, to start immediately. You don’t want to look back years from now and realize that you waited too long to have a solid retirement portfolio.
