What is a major factor in deciding how to invest as I near retirement?
A major factor in deciding how to invest your money as you near retirement is how much risk you are willing to tolerate in exchange for the return you wish to make. Some investors prefer portfolios that carry a considerable amount of risk, whether the investments are in equities or bonds. Other investors prefer more conservative portfolios, and are willing to sacrifice higher returns in exchange for peace of mind.
