They don't call him Saint Jack for nothing
on August 4, 2015
John Bogle is such an amazing man. His intellect and integrity are equally matched. He is so humble when he speaks with people and never is patronizing or egotistical. Yet, the man is one of the most brilliant minds in investing and his sole mission is to make sure the little guy gets his fair share by investing in low cost index funds. Like all brilliant ideas, the majesty of simplicity is the core of the message. To retire with wealth and most likely beat 90% of the managed funds out there all you need to do is invest in the Total Stock Market Index and the Total Bond Market Index; set an asset allocation equal to your age and you are done. If you want a splash of international, you guessed it invest in the Total International Index. Deep down I remain absolutely confident that all anyone needs is two funds or even better go with the Vanguard Balanced Index Fund and just keep adding to it. Don't even look at it (as Jack would say Don't Peek). The week before retirement check your account balance. Have a doctor nearby because you will probably faint when you see how much is in there. Stay the Course, Tune out the Noise and don't just do something, stand there. The interview with Jack is one of the best ones out there. He explains it all and gives us the eternal truths of investing that never change.
