    – equity mutual fund investors underperformed the S&P 500 (the equity market proxy) by 8.19% (13.69% vs. 5.5%)
    – fixed income mutual fund investors underperformed the Barclays (the bond market proxy) by 4.81% (5.97% vs. 1.16%)- Parting Thought: What if instead of trying to outperform the market to create wealth, you instead looked at the market as a way to preserve the wealth you are creating through your income?
