Alexander Green has a saying: “Nobody cares about your money more than you do.”
It’s what drives our passion to help readers live a richer life. We want to give you the tools to build wealth. Because at the end of the day, it’s your money. And you’re in control of your legacy.
But we know that not everyone has the same experiences managing their money. So we decided to ask readers in this week’s poll: Do you manage your own money or use a financial advisor?
A vast majority of readers said they manage their own money.
George M. wrote, “All myself, with the help of The Oxford Club. Had a professional before. Was not getting what I was paying for.”
Craig C. said he manages his own money and that most of his portfolio is in mutual funds. “I also have been reasonably successfully swing trading futures for about 10 years, but find, with the economy improving the last two to three years, that my business has become too busy to give it the attention it requires. I have stopped trading in this way and moved into a more strategic equities portfolio with the help of The Oxford Club.”
Some readers told us they do both, like William S., who wrote that he has “some funds primarily with an advisor whose decisions are run by my wife and me. Other funds I manage by myself.”
And Cheryl R. is heading in that direction, saying, “I would like to move into the both category… That’s why I joined The Oxford Club.”
