And today, the same phenomenon exists.

Target-Date Funds Take Over
Client: Employee Fiduciary

Target-date mutual funds are taking over the 401(k) market. Once a small backwater of the industry -- often uncharitably dismissed as products for the unsophisticated or lazy -- target-date funds are designed to be a complete, one-stop investment. These asset-allocation funds invest in global stocks and bonds, gradually shifting the mix toward a more conservative allocation as they near the "target" year in its name. Investors choose a fund closest to their expected retirement date, whether five, 10, or nearly 50 years out.

The future of Chicago tech involves options traders in their underwear
Client: tradeMONSTER

When Jon Najarian walks into a room, you can tell where he’s been in his life. His handshake testifies to a brief stint as a linebacker for the Bears in 1981. A silver skull ring the size of a half-dollar smacks of the bravado of the pit trader, as Najarian was for much of the eighties. Now a frequent commentator on CNBC’s Fast Money, he has the minor celebrity’s habit of greeting strangers by name, a tendency that’s both warm and a little confusing.
