Additional Helpful and Important Information

The basic FAIR SHARE MARKET MODELSM ANALYSIS allows long-term investors to estimate cumulative dollar returns, egregious expenses, and associated risks by inserting the following items:

Amount invested ($1,000 to $10,000,000,000).

Expected annual return (1.0% to 15.0%).  The basic global 50/50 balanced estimate was 5.9% as of January 1, 2024 (revised April 18, 2024).  Various sources and methods were used to calculate the consensus return.  They are for educational purposes only to help investors set reasonable expectations.  For example, due to a lack of clear data, ten-year estimates were used for the forty-year forecasts.  Also, as a reference, from 1926 to 2023 the 50/50 balanced return and inflation estimates were 8.1% and 2.9%.

It should also be noted that global equity and fixed forecasts as of January 1, 2024 (revised April 18, 2024) were 6.9% and 4.9%.

Estimated total fees (generally 1.0% to 3.0%).  Aggregate expenses can include:
Financial planning, registered investment adviser, and mutual and exchange traded fund fees;
Transaction (commissions, markups/markdowns, payments-for-order-flow, etc.) fees;
Custodial and other administration fees.

Midwest total fees.  Combined internal and external portfolio management expenses should be 0.2% to 0.6%, depending on account size.

Time horizon in years. Forty years is used to help investors realize the cumulative negative effect that egregious charges have on their economic well-being – see The Wisdom of John Bogle – 2023 research.  For large accounts, customized maturities, cash flows, and other factors can be provided.
