Visit Kiplinger's Model Portfolios for three examples of how you can put Kiplinger 25 funds to work. The portfolios are designed for investors with differing time horizons and levels of risk tolerance. If you find them too aggressive, cut back each basket's allocation to stocks by ten percentage points. If you're investing in a taxable account, replace one or more of the bond funds with Fidelity Intermediate Municipal Income (FLTMX).
