Overview

Are the 95 million Americans invested in mutual funds making a mistake? Will inherent problems in the fund industry keep investors from achieving their goals? ""Absolutely,"" says author and financial expert Don Wilkinson. ""Mutual funds are the road kill of American investing.""

In Stop Wasting Your Wealth in Mutual Funds, Wilkinson throws passé investment strategy out the window to make room for the reality of a new era. According to Wilkinson, there’s a smart alternative to mutual funds-separately managed accounts, or SAMs.

In this brilliant how-to guide, Wilkinson explains that investors can gain and maintain wealth through a SAM, an individual basket of stocks or bonds. This new handbook shows how the average investor can now open a separate account for as little as $25,000-and have the account managed by a top institutional money manager through the investor’s financial advisor.

Stop Wasting Your Wealth in Mutual Funds proves to mainstream readers that they can invest like the super-rich and reap the myriad benefits of a SAM: reduced taxes, elimination of hidden fees, customized holdings, and potentially improved performance.

Packed with top-notch advice from a financial pro, Stop Wasting Your Wealth in Mutual Funds is the bible for investors seeking superior results with greater control. One of the most useful and thought-provoking investment books published this year.

Highlights In Stop Wasting Your Wealth in Mutual Funds, Don Wilkinson provides:

•Point-by-point comparisons of SAMs to mutual funds, outlining risks, benefits, and returns

•A user-friendly process for opening, customizing, and switching to a separate account from mutual funds

•A comprehensive list of financial advisors for fledgling investors

•Ways to find advisors who handle separate accounts for clients

    Finally a book that offers an alternative to over taxing, high fee mutual funds

    I found out I will be paying as much to the IRS in 2005 as I did in 2000 in capital gains taxes with my mutual funds. This won't happen in 06 because as a result of this great book showing me what a separate account can do for me in reducing taxes, eliminating unnecessary fees and allowing me to customize by portfolio. I recommend this book highly as the optimum way for the investor to protect and inhance his wealth and not have it whittled down by mutual fund capital gains taxes and exhorbitant fees.

    Here's the first book out I have seen that is written for the investor that gives him or her a better financial strategy than mutual funds with their high and hidden fees and tax liability. Clearly a winner for the investor who desires a superior way to perserve and inhance wealth.

    Stop Wasting Your Wealth in Mutual Funds: Separately Managed Accounts - The Smart Alternative

    After reading this book with intense interest, I have decided I will no longer pay huge capital gains and suffer constantly flat returns year in and year out. Now, I find out I can be expected to pay the highest capital gains on my mutuals this year since 2000 when I got hit good by Uncle Sam. This book explans it so well that separate accounts will keep you from those big tax gains by doing tax 'harvesting.' througout the year. Lots of other good things about separate accounts like being able to customize your stocks (no tobacco stocks for me) and avoiding those high fees that mutual funds sneak in on you...I going to my advisor this week and ask him to put me in a separate account. No more mutual funds for me!
