Yes, i mean it’s an asset class and also a type of PE. But fundamentals are the same. leveraged buyout & hopefully sell for more

Not just like, but similar conceptually in that you’re buying a private asset, improving it, and selling it for more than you bought it for. More financial engineering and tools in the toolbox in PE (partially a function of hold period)

Yes of course. They’re exactly the same.

smart

Far fewer variables to address for the house

My new employer is gonna pay 100% of the premium for the employee(I am single - no husband/kids) for medical, dental and vision. They are providing 2 options:

2. BCBS TX HDHP HSA $2800 (High deductible plan)
I am interested in opening an HSA account for tax benefits but not sure how much it will be taken from my paycheck as the salary here is pretty low. I also will be contributing to 401k by myself. Can someone please guide me on this?

I had a crush on a girl. It's been almost 2 years since I confessed my feelings to her and today she told me that she likes me too.
The only issue is she's a Muslim and I'm a Hindu. She believes we don't have a future and that's why she took a long time to confess. She is confused on what to do and even I am confused because things will actually be difficult for obvious reasons.
Please advice on what we should do now.
Should we part ways or should we fight for it?
