SIP equivalent in the US

POSTED BY anon smith ON August 20, 2012 11:36 am COMMENTS (4)

Hi,

SIPs are great vehicles in India which take your money and do your investing for you (diversification of portfolio, timing of stocks, almost low risk for 10-15 year tenures, etc.), without you spending any time thinking about it. Are there equivalent firms which do it in the US?

My employer gave me stocks, it’s a highly reputed company, but there’s no diversification. I want to liquidate some of it and diversify and manage my stocks for 15 years (before returning to India), without getting too involved in the process.

    For US based investing, it is better to read up and ask in a US based forum.

    eg. http://www.bogleheads.org/forum/index.php

    quite a decent one.

    For US, a passive investing strategy works in a better manner because of huge upfront costs in active funds. Read a lot, for both learning from a US point of view and unlearning from an Indian point of view. Also, there is no hurry.
