How do you go about personal investing (non 401k) given all of the independence issues? I set up a robo fidelity account and immediately closed it with fears that I would catch the shit list from the firm. Do you all just self manage?

Question for funds folks, since no one is around to answer any questions and I can't seem to find this answer anywhere. Why can't a placement agent combine or integrate the offering of interests in the sponsor's fund with the contemporaneous offering of interests in another fund? Is it based on reputational risk or from a sales perspective in case someone rejects both funds, any other issues? Thanks!

I’ve had several great interviews with a few diff companies. Or rather, I thought they went well but then I get the dreaded “thanks but we made the difficult decision to move forward with other candidates”. I’ve asked for feedback but so far have gotten none.

I know it’s competitive out there, but I also don’t know how I can either position myself better, seek positions that are more aligned with my expertise/experience, or work on improving certain areas.

Any advice on how to proceed?

I am 22 and have both an individual brokerage account, Roth IRA, and 401k.

I invest up to the company match in 401k, Max out the Roth, and invest here and there in the individual brokerage account.

In the individual and Roth I only invest in etfs for simplicity, but my question is should I structure my etfs differently in each?

Current breakdowns:
Roth (20% vtwo, 30% voo, 25% PBW, 25% arkw)
Personal (30% PBW, 15% fxaix, 10% fagix, 30% arkw, 15% vtwo)
