Top 10 Investment Tips from the Ancient Texts of Classic Rock ‘n’ Roll

Justin here. I found this absolute gem of a article on the CFA Institute’s website. Written by Thomas Collimore, CFA, (Director, Investor Education for CFA Institute) it has some great tips and might even make you hum some classic rock. Here’s a sample:

8. “Lady Madonna,” The Beatles (1968)

“Lady Madonna, children at your feet,
Wonder how you manage to make ends meet.
Who finds the money when you pay the rent?
Did you think that money was heaven sent?”


Plan, plan, and then plan again. Committing yourself to a realistic investment plan requires understanding your resources and obligations as well as the essential attributes of your future desired lifestyle. As you plan your investment strategy, leave room for investment underperformance. Committing your plan to writing may force you to address issues that you might otherwise glide over.


Go here for the full list of tips inspired by hits from bands like The Eagles, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, and Aerosmith touching on topics such as Expenses, Longevity Risk, Taxes, and Professional Designations. It’s rare to find something worth reading that’s this easy to read. Good work Mr. Collimore.
