When it comes to investing, teachers are top of the class. They even get better returns than people working in the finance industry, according to an analysis of how 20,000 openfolio.com investors performed over a 12-month period ending in February. Teachers’ superior returns were attributed to patience (they traded just 6.1 times a year compared to an average of 9.1), risk reduction (they had a 12% higher allocation of diversified funds), and being more invested (they held less cash in their portfolios).
