Chicago-Based Banking Firm Madison Street Capital Says Baby Boomers Should Consider More ETFs

Would you believe a large number of baby boomers have little to no retirement reserves? According to Chicago-based investment advisors, Madison Street Capital, the economic crisis that hit years ago created an uncomfortable dent in retirement accounts, and today, many baby boomers remain in the same dire situation. In fact, that economic nosedive left many too squeamish to confidently continue to invest. “What individuals fail to understand is that, it’s even scarier if you’re not investing,” says a Madison Street Capital advisor.

It turns out, one of the friendliest methods of investing for small time novice investors is exchange traded funds, or ETFs, because they offer advantages over other forms of investments. Most individuals are aware of mutual funds, but ETFs offer a number of benefits.

1. Low cost

The biggest advantage of ETFs over mutual funds is that ETFs simply cost less. The fees for mutual funds typically range up to two percent, but ETFs are usually from 0 to less than one percent of the total. Bottom line is, ETFs are cheap.

2. Liquidity

ETFs can be sold faster than traditional investment funds – so it makes it easier to cash out. The selling of conventional mutual funds takes days to finally credit to your account.

3. Easy Diversification

Investors choosing mutual funds are usually limited to investing in whatever the mutual fund offers, yet investors can purchase individual ETF shares at any time, domestic or international.

4. For The Novice And A Small Fortune

ETFs are ideally suited for smaller assets because they do not require expensive management teams with high management fees. Investor depots like Fidelity and Scottrade allow you to purchase as many or as few stocks as you like.

Exchange traded funds certainly have not disappointed. Even financial and stock advice from billionaires like Warren Buffet can be duplicated with ETFs, so don’t allow fear to guide your decisions.

Mike Baur Is Passionate About Swiss Start-Up Factory

Mike Baur worked in the banking industry for twenty years and decided he was “not such a traditional spirit.” In an upbeat interview with the personable Jean-Pierre Vuilleumier, newly installed Pitch Training and Coaching Manager, Mike was asked why the Co-Founder of the Swiss Start-Up Factory called it a “factory.” Mike just chuckled and noted there were two reasons:

1 They are in the business of “manufacturing new companies,” and
2 “Young people have to work harder.”

That being said, it certainly echoes his strong, work hard with a passion philosophy.
When Jean-Pierre continued to dig just a little noting when there were no many “incubators” out there, what made the Swiss Start-Up Factory any different? Mike pointed out that SSUF had “skin in the game…their own money.” Also, they are independent and are not involved in politics.

Mike Baur should know. As the CEO, he is responsible for fundraising and financing rounds. Before he began his career in the banking system, he obtained an MBA from the University of Rochester in New York, as well as an additional Executive MBA from the University of Bern.

Perusing the Swiss Start-Up Factory website notes a mix of twelve young, dynamic and dedicated individuals as part of the Factory team. The thirteenth member appears to be a sweet-faced Labrador Retriever named Mexx, who is in charge of Security, “Chief of Food, Security, and Good Feeling.

The 39-year-old Baur along with two co-founding partners founded the Swiss Start-Up Factory in 2014. The Swiss Start-Up Factory is now considered the No. 1 privately financed ICT Zurich-based Accelerator in Switzerland. SSUF looks for thriving, “matured start-ups,” digital entrepreneurs. They provide a three-month program that includes coaching and office space in Zurich.

Most recently, the Fintech Fusion and the Swiss Start-Up Factory announced a partnership in which together they will collaborate on the process of start-up including pre-selection process, acceleration, and joint events. Fusion is a Geneva based Accelerator.

Earlier this year, the Swiss Start-Up Factory began cooperation with CTI Invest in an effort to advance development of the Swiss Start-Up Ecosystem. Together they have created a website and developed podcasts and videos of Swiss Start-ups. SSUF will support co-organization of events including Swiss Venture Days.
