Any RSM peeps out there? How do their benefits compare to Deloitte? Do they have well being subsidy, pension plan, etc? What is PTO policy? Do you work from home?
27F; Hit a milestone today of $100k invested! I came to this bowl 6 months ago prior to investing anything into a brokerage account. (I did have a 401k and ROTH IRA) Happy to say I’ve reallocated my $ and I’m starting to see it grow. No debt, the $518 is just my CC and will be paid at the end of the month. Thanks for all the insights. I’ve been a long time lurker, had to pay my way through college, have parents who are bad with $, and you guys really help strangers like me learn our way to FI.
I'm looking at rebalancing my 401K, but I need some help. Back in 2018 when I rebalanced to a new fund Y, it looks like it moved what I had in Target Fund into Y but subsequent contributions went into the Target Fund. 2 years later, the fund Y has the $2K but Target Fund grows. Can I change my contributions to consistently go into different buckets and not just the one Target Fund? Please help!
Would it be wiser to spend my time learning how to invest or studying for the CPA and then learning how to invest? My goal is to achieve financial independence and retire early. To be honest, I’d like to use my job as a source to fund my investing, so that’s why I’m not sure if I would want to study for the CPA if my end goal isn’t necessarily to be a partner or anything. I’m in my early 20s.
My salary is 95k, 10% in 401k, save $1500 a month, renting, and single. I feel financially middle class despite being at least in the 80th percentile. Seems really hard to achieve the american dream.
How is your net worth split by percentage? I need to diversify. I have 90% in index funds (through various methods: 401k, Roth, personal investments), 10% liquid which is too much at the moment). Would like to invest 3% of NW in crypto but not when it’s at the highest it’s ever been at the moment. I’m 37, married, and NW just north of 1M.
I've seen various threads where people (some big 4?) have referred to their companies' pensions. Can someone explain this to me? Why would anyone in this day and age offer pensions (versus 401k etc)?
I recently switched employers and have the opportunity to roll over my 401k to a 403b, both are managed by Fidelity. Should I complete the rollover or look at other IRA options? I have roughly 100k to rollover.
Kind of late to the game so any advice is appreciated. I have been blindly putting money into my 401k (vanguard) with random fund distribution. After close look now I realized I am loosing money each month by few then gaining anything so I am trying to be little hands on now. I did some google research for top vanguard funds and selected 10 and put them each for 10% distribution. Wanted to ask if you guys have any suggestions as to what fund to avoid/what fund good to have? Tyia!
When a company transitions 401k providers, and funds are being mapped over, do the funds stay invested throughout the entire process? Or are there typically a few days out of the market? Cont...
Does anyone know D's 401k plan rules on after tax contributions? Trying to see if mega backdoor Roth is available.
I suppose those of us in finance at big employers have to preclear personal trading/investment. Couple questions: 1. What’s your holding period? ie if I buy something then I can’t sell it for profit after 60 days (looks like cutting loss before 60 days is fine) 2. Is there a way to automate our investments to any extent? Every month my 401k contribution is automatically invested in firm-approved funds but I haven’t set up my brokerage account to do the same due to preclearance
In your opinion what is a better life - being really rich like making $500k a year or more but no serious relationship. Or having a partner and family but making below $200k?
Having been prospecting business owners for some time now, I am asked about 401k plans quite often. I am curious how you are managing the assets...do you offer a menu of investment options?
Excluding 401k, how much savings have you accrued since starting work (and when did you start)?
But once again not posting

When I was silver status, I NEVER got upgraded except once when I asked the lady at the gate. Now that I’m upgraded to gold status on united, will anything change?

Best excuses for missing work for an interview?
Accenture moved me to CDO. Do they just not value the dollars I put in their pocket, or did they hire too many employees in the first place for their 95% delivery model?
