Currently am contributing money into both 401K and Roth 401K. Should I also open up a Roth IRA?

Yes. A Roth IRA is a great investment tool for retirement. I believe the yearly contribution amount is now 6k

Yes. And prioritize company match on 401k, then IRA (and HSA if available to you), then back to 401k.

I just turned 33 and currently have 165k in my 401k. I have a couple questions for folks who are much smarter than me on this stuff.. 1. Is that a decent amount for my age? I know some have more or less but want to make sure I’m doing okay 2. This money is split between three companies (Fidelity, T Rowe Price, etc) as I never rolled together throughout the years when switching jobs. Did I hurt myself a lot by not doing that and should I combine asap?

I'm sure this has been asked before, but what are your go to ETFs for a Roth IRA account? Is splitting 50/50 VTI and VOO a fine idea? Or add in a few other ETFs by sector? Maxing out my 401K already, but employer only gives one option so haven't had to think much about this. Individual brokerage focuses mostly on VFIAX, VGT, and a select few individual stocks.

Career advice? Have 10-15 years of experience. Credentialed actuary and first half of my career was pension consulting, since then have broadened to multiple areas of HR/Comp/Benefits. Testing the waters with some applications at both consulting firms and switching in house. First interview for director of total rewards was waste of time due to pay only being half of what I expected. What other groups/roles are out there I should be looking at? Would M&A HR due diligence have zero WLB? Thanks!

Hello! I’m 22 and I have enough saved up in my emergency fund to go ahead and turn my savings to starting a Roth IRA (yes I have a Roth 401k that I contribute to with my firm). I’m not great in finance and so I was looking for investment options that fit best for a ‘beginner’. I was considering either a Target 2055 or a Target 2055 index Mutual fund. But now I’m seeing other options like ETFs and I’m getting confused. Any advice on where to start would be really helpful!
