Vanguard funds have really low fees

Vanguard and maybe a risky fund

The younger you are the more you can afford risk. If you can figure out when you wanna retire, how much you wanna have when that time comes, what kind of lifestyle you wanna live - it would help you allocate your investments early on.

I have been using Vanguard predominantly to do any investments. What specific funds in Vanguard would you recommend? Some risky and other safer ones?

How old are ya? That's a big factor - if you're in your 20s go for a risky one

In my 20s

Don't just focus on the portfolio manager. Expand your search to meeting your goals. ETFs that mimics the market (for long term investment) is almost always good then mix it up with ETFs that tracks commodities, tech, industrials might be good for you.

Ladies, do you think getting passed over for promotion due to maternity leave is fair? Obviously makes sense not to be promoted if performance is lacking. However, if you killed it for ~30 weeks cont.

I’m convinced 70% of MBBs revenue comes from the healthcare & financial services sector, and less of the exciting TMT work the rest of industry is heading (ex FAANG). Can any of y’all say you have greater than 30% REV here? Feel most blue chip clients have ex-MBB Corp dev teams in house by now...
