Today, we are doing a role reversal. Today, you are going help me make a decision to invest in a product.
I am sure over time you have got a good understanding about evaluating financial products and hence I call for your help.
Here’s what happened and why I need your help?
An executive of a large mutual fund company has come to me and is pitching their mutual fund product. He tells me that using a dynamic asset allocation method, their product has delivered superior performance.
He shows the performance chart of the product with great confidence.
The image below shows an asset allocation based portfolio performance and comparison with an index benchmark.

Indeed, as it appears from the data, the superior results highlight the strength of their research and selection process.
The executive is pushing me to make a decision and sign the cheque.
I ask him to hold his horses. I tell him that there is a wise person whose opinion I need to seek.
This wise person is none other than you. As a Unovestor and a reader of this blog, you are a pool of wisdom. Can you help me make this decision to invest or not?
Please take a few minutes to go through the data by yourself.
Use the comments box of this post and list down all the questions that you believe I should ask based on what is shown to me.
What other information should I ask for before I actually make the decision?
Is the portfolio performance unquestionable?
This is how I want to say thanks to you
