My latest post for Alpha Baskets looks using diversification to counteract the types of behaviors that tend to derail financial/retirement plans.
From the post;
A recent post looked at myopic loss aversion which is acting out based on short term emotion at the expense of long term well being. It can’t be stressed enough that the short term does not matter for most post people. At 65 or 70 or some other desired retirement age an investor either has enough or they don’t. Lagging by 5% one year for having too much small cap or lagging by 6% another year for not enough emerging market exposure is not a difference maker to having enough money when it is needed.
