I have an in house offer and with all the extra big law bonuses lately, it’s going to be a 40 - 50% pay cut. But it’s an amazing opportunity and I’m excited about it. Last May I started working with a Morgan Stanley financial advisor for long term investing. I will definitely have to cut the amount I am investing each month in half, but I am wondering if it is worth keeping the account open with Morgan Stanley after all the fees. Does anyone have any insight on the pros and cons?

You should probably provide your new TC. Assuming you are a midlevel, I am assuming it’s low to mid-200s, right?

That’s a good point.

Technically, if you are rich enough, isn’t self-insurance the best option? Insurance companies have to make money by taking in more in premiums than paying out in claims, so on average the customer is losing money and has a negative (albeit stable) NPV on their insurance money. But if you had enough money to tolerate the risk of a unexpectedly high expense, wouldn’t it be better to not pay for the insurance?
