Wealthy Americans say financial worries hurt their mental health

Bloomberg/Lananh Nguyen

“Even relatively wealthy Americans are so worried about their finances that it’s affecting their mental and physical health. That’s one of the findings in a Bank of America Corp. survey of more than 1,000 people in the U.S. who have enough investable money to qualify as “mass affluent.” Financial concerns affected the mental health of 59% of respondents, while 56% said their physical health has been hurt.”

USAGOLD note:  One wonders how many among that 59% are properly diversified – and by that we mean with gold as part of the portfolio mix. (Too many see diversification as the proper mix between stocks and bonds.)  Want less stress – or no stress?  Diversify and let others fret.
