Hi all, I’ve come into ~£600k, and am looking for investment advice. Is 5-7% avg return feasible over 10-15 years? What are some typical strategies? Should I consult a money manager? What fees do they charge? Supporting facts: 1- 35yo, no kids (yet), would love to slow down career by age 45 2- no plans to adjust current lifestyle 3- only debt left is £120k mortgage at an affordable 3% 4- besides my flat only have experience with passive investing (small sums) 5- risk tolerance mid-high. Thanks!
So far this transition at my country is just a nightmare Was not enough taking over GM clients from the ones who stayed with PwC as they are the « reward « team. In addition to the 180% workload they picking up new services which were provided by other departments (stayed also with PwC).
All in all my experiences are pretty bad so far. Vialto Partners
The company I work for in the construction industry is revising its parental leave policy. I’m aware of lawsuits related to equal bonding time. The updated draft policy gives 8 weeks to birthing parent to recover & then 4 weeks to each parent for bonding. Reactions? I would appreciate any insights.

I didn't come into advertising the traditional way. I was more of an image compositor, just comping together cool stuff (digital collage, key art for movies and shows I liked, vector illustrations, cinemagraphs) but nothing official. Nothing for any company. No ads/banner ads.
My site (Behance/Weebly) got discovered and I got hired. That being said, I don't have a real book.

Thoughts on buying pre-construction homes in markets that are popping and flipping selling them when construction is complete?
My uncle does this (he’s a realtor) and usually gets 2-3x return. Obviously there is huge risk because property prices can change a lot in 1-2 years, but at the same time the upside is hard to ignore.
Anyway I protect myself against the downside risk? (other than loosing my down payment)
I'm designing our new teacher evaluation system for my charter school. Any ideas for good things to copy from?

If you’re a junior who literally never interacts with the partners on your deals, should you still call them to say you’re leaving the firm, or ok to just tell one partner for official notice and then tell the midlevels you work with?

When (if ever) would you say something to a rude partner? There’s on I actually like in personal settings and he was great at work at first, but he’s a complete prick now. He doesn’t yell, but everything he says is dripping with contempt lately. Others have the same experience. I haven’t made any major mistakes, but he acts like whatever I say is the dumbest thing he’s ever heard. I also can’t finish a thought since he’s constantly interrupting. I feel like asking if he needs a hug.
Today marks two weeks from Milbank. DPW, you had two full weeks, which generally translates to roughly at the least 100 billable hours of any given associate’s time. I’m sure you are charging out your midlevels at at the least 1k an hour, so that’s easily 100k * whatever realization percentage you have. That’s more than enough to make up for whatever flimsy 5-10k raise we are asking for, no? I just went to bed at 2am and woke up at 6 for 4 fire drills. Let this misery end, Sir DPW, esquire!

Young Associates: Every major firm is either laying off associates or considering laying off associates. Don't be fooled by your firm's silence. They are trying to pass off these layoffs as performance related moves but you should not be fooled. Be wary and try, if possible, to keep your hours up.
