Tony Robbins recommends portfolio optimization only once a year.

In his recent book on personal finance, Tony Robbins recommends that each investor should rebalance his or her investment portfolio *only once a year* to invest for the long-term.

Robbins defies the conventional wisdom and so suggests that a smart investor should admit that he or she lacks any special advantage in a myopic attempt to beat the market.

A multi-year investment period extends the time horizon for the typical investor to earn both dividend yields and capital gains with much more probable success.

Robbins also points out that it is pivotal for the typical investor to start investing in stocks for their higher long-run average returns during his or her professional career.

Given the power of exponential compound interest growth, dividend yields and capital gains help accumulate capital wealth much faster.

The typical investor's ability to accumulate passive income determines a larger fraction of his or her wealth at retirement age because this income accumulation follows the law of exponential compound interest growth.

In contrast, the typical investor's salaries and bonuses only represent a smaller fraction of his or her wealth at retirement age because this income accumulates over time with no compound interest.
