Reading is for learning. You shouldn’t change your portfolio every time you come in contact with a new idea but after a few books, you might know more and be able to build a better portfolio. Also since I’m guessing those are stock index funds, they’re the opposite of safe.

To con't the conversation on engagement rings💍 - what do they symbolize to you? My BF and I got into a discussion about this last night.

I see the ring as more of a gift to the future bride that is an expense that can be sold for money if needed, but isn't an investment. I'm fine w/ lab grown, he is not. Thoughts?

Hi, where or what types of companies should sophomores & juniors apply for next summer (2022) to recruit for IB the following summer (2023)? This summer BBs wrapped up SA IB recruitment, EBs even earlier, and a fair amount of my friends missed out big time. Also, if a sophomore or junior doesn’t get a finance-related summer internship (I.e tech) and aims for an IB SA or FT position, is it harder to break in? Appreciate any advice and insight, thank you.
