Reducing investment costs can have a major impact on expected returns in your retirement and/or investment portfolio, more so than many people realise. Investing in a fund where the manager is paid big bucks to speculate on individual stocks and market timing (a technique known as "active" management) is not only hit-and-miss in terms of the final results, it is also expensive.

My hobbies are reading, social networking. Finance and math are my favorite subjects.
I graduated with a BSEE from NCSU. Following technology companies and developments is a hobby of mine when I have free time. A few years ago I started investing, and have tremendously enjoyed it. I try and share a unique view from an engineering vice an investor standpoint, and enjoy learning from others in the SA community.
Retired aerospace engineer. Bachelor's degree in physics, doctorate in fluid mechanics. More than a passing interest and experience in computation and computer hardware. Possibly better known in some circles than I should be because of my obsession with interconnect bandwidth in "supercomputers" (which, for some applications, aren't all that super).
