Most pre-packaged or “bundled” retirement programs offered by banks, mutual fund, and insurance companies are marketed in a way that makes them appear as an inexpensive alternative for employers who want to offer a retirement benefit to their employees.

Besides being expensive, these organizations usually will not act as a fiduciary because, regardless of what they say or how nice they may be, the commission-based provider operates with a built in conflict of interest.

The idea that superior intellect or better stock-picking prowess offers better returns does not play out in real life. Even more compelling is the fixed income slide. Again, with many different asset categories covered here, most of these active managers failed to beat their benchmark. These results change from year to year, but the theme is the same. Each year, 60 to 70 percent of active managers fail to beat their benchmark. The ones that do are not the same ones from year to year, and trying to figure out who will outperform next year is even more difficult. If investors can perform in the top 30 to 40 percent of managers on a regular basis by owning the benchmark instead of trying to beat it, they will find themselves floating closer and closer to the top of performance...
