Sept. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Morningstar, Inc. (NASDAQ: MORN), a leading provider of independent investment research, today announced new research that quantifies how much additional retirement income, or "Gamma," investors can generate by making better financial planning decisions.
"Investors arguably put a lot of time and effort into selecting investment funds or managers they hope will outperform the market—the so called 'Alpha' decision. However, Alpha is just one of many important decisions that can have a significant effect on retirement income. We refer to the extra income an investor can earn by making better financial decisions as Gamma," said
David Blanchett, head of retirement research for the Morningstar Investment Management division. "Unlike traditional Alpha, which can be hard to predict, any investor can achieve Gamma by following an efficient financial planning strategy."
