I am a retired physician with 35 years investing experience, initially with several "full service" brokers and beginning in 1990 more and more with discount brokers. I've always enjoyed doing the research and actually have done very well with my own ideas and generally did better with my own picks than with the brokers ideas. I've owned several names that went bankrupt-- all were bought on advice of the brokers. I finally fired my last full service broker in 2009, horrified that I was experiencing yet another huge market decline. I told myself I can make my own mistakes and save the commission. I tried many different mutual funds as well with very mixed results.
For years I never bought bonds but now
that I am retired I have built a seven year bond ladder with 25% of my portfolio and plan to stay about that level, rolling over the bonds as they mature. So far I still own mostly individual stocks but have begun accumulating ETFs in anticipation of eventually retiring from investing as I retired from my profession. I would prefer broad market ETFs rather than paying some advisor to manage my account. I've looked into their fees and fine them unacceptable.
