Investing Near Retirement
Many realize that as they near retirement that their investment options shrink to less risky and more responsible.

Many Boomers started investing during the technology boom, a great and profitable time for most, but since then the market has been more volatile in that area and Boomers have moved their assets in to more stable and safe investments.
