Hi! I’m 30, own a home, 50k in 401k & 25k in Roth, no other savings. Roth has a ROR of 2%. Should I leave $ in Roth? Reinvest in a diff acct? Grow it until I can buy an investment property?

I’d suggest leaving the $25k in the Roth IRA and definitely reinvest it. If you don’t mind me asking, what are you current holdings? 2% return is paltry in this economy. If you’ve been maxing it out, it’s only like 4-5 years old. Over that timeline, the S&P has increased 60%. Also if the account is not 5yrs old, you will get hit with tax penalties for withdrawals.

I put my 401k rollover from a previous company into a Roth and never did anything with it, it’s all short term reserves. So just leave the money and allocate to stocks and bonds? (90/10)

Huh? 10 yoe and only c? It all adds up.

2% ROR in this market is criminal. Is it sitting in a money market? The S&P returned 30% last year. Find a financial planner, although their asset management fees can be high you are losing way more by not being invested in the right funds.

Hi I am having some trouble on choosing between Deloitte and PwC for a 2022 winter internship. Some pros for Deloitte include being the largest firm, and the promotion to senior being 2 years opposed to 3 at PwC. Additionally, Deloitte offers a pension and has Deloitte university. The pros of PwC include a gym in the office and a younger work force. They also give me much less of a “corporate” feel and seem to offer more flexibility. I’m wondering if anyone could give me any advice on deciding?
