It's typical for Europe not to offer bonuses to HR. Remember about the UK taxes, though. The housing will be comparable to NYC, but you'll be paying about 40% in taxes.

My husband and I (both 27) max out our Roth IRAs each year, have a complete emergency fund, and I’m able to start maxing my 401K this year (he contributes 10% to his 401K - it isn’t possible for him to max his based on his current pay). We contribute 18% extra towards principal on our mortgage each month. We now have about $20k of additional savings we want to figure out what to do with. What would you recommend to someone who is new to stocks/investments?

I sometimes listen to Ben Shapiro, I am a libertarian myself. While he clearly has a point of view that he transparently shares I feel he does a good job in explaining the thoughts of the other side and gives actual quotes and live clips to back up his position. on his show, he told his viewers to tune into pod save america, the liberal version of his show. I've listened to it multiple times now, and it just seems to be people venting their own opinions with certainly not as much substance
