Warren Buffett Ideas on Retirement Investment


Read this article in Yahoo Finance about Warren Buffett's guide to retirement investment.

This was said during his annual letter to the shareholders of Berkshire Hathaway which is becoming something that people in the finance industry takes note of.

It was even collated to form the basis of a book on its own. Hard to imagine any other annual report statement by the Chairperson or CEO being made to a book.

Anyway, back to the article, there was four main themes that the article mentioned that relates to retirement investing.

1. Index funds beats stock pickers

2. Domestic funds beats foreign funds

3. Stocks beats bonds

4. Short term bonds beats long term.

While I tend to agree with all of the above, I believe that even Warren Buffett hedges his bets, for example, he would buy foreign stocks too, even from China. So I'd want to buy foreign index funds to hedge. So I have both S&P500 and STI index funds and dollar average both.

And for him, he doesn't invest in index funds, because he is the best stock picker there is for the last 40-50 years.

So this describes what he views the rest of us should do and what he wants the trustee of his will to do for his wife.

Simple advise that all of us will do well to follow.
