Jason Butler: Is your advice based on myths?

Myth 3 – A client’s investment portfolio should meet or beat a relevant investment index or benchmark

The only benchmark that matters is meeting one’s personal financial life goals and to do that you need a personal plan that gives proper context to saving, investing and spending decisions.
