Bankrate.com recently published the results of their Financial Security Index survey. Americans where asked where they prefer to keep the #money they would not need for 10 years. 25% of investors still prefer to keep the money in savings and CDs, where it earns practically nothing! 23% prefer real estate, 19% the stock market, and 14% like gold (see chart).
“The money not needed for 10 years” means a long investment horizon over which the effect of short-term market volatility is reduced. In this situation, equities is the asset class with the best long-term potential return. We at Model Capital find it amazing that investors do not allocate more than 19% of their long-term money to this asset class.
