Today is a great example why you need to have diversifiers in your portfolio. EDV and VPU to name a few

Not so sure. One down 11%, then other up only 5% YTD. Catching tons of downside.

Not the right way to evaluate diversification

Overweighting VPU isn’t diversifying, it’s concentrating. I’d also suspect that longer term EDV returns are more correlated with the broad stock market than a fund with more balanced maturities.

I know diversification’s about correlations lmao my point is that flight to safety isn’t flight to 30y STRIPS

So spent the last 30 hours working through this trying to books with points. Still nada. Anybody else have luck?

I've heard a couple of things about how the partner pension amount @ PwC is determined, both similar in approach.

Both calculations I have heard of result in an annuity paid until death, at which point a surviving spouse (if any) receives the annuity.

The first calculation I have heard is that you get 80% of your highest earning year as a partner (e.g. If your best year was $1M, you'd get $800k as an annuity).

The second calculation I have heard is that they look at your three highest earning years as a partner, and take the second highest and you get 100% of that. (e.g if your three highest earning years were $1M, $800k, and $1.2M, you'd receive $1M as an annuity).

Is ANY of this true, or just all rumor? Any PwC partners that can chime in and explain the pension plan fact for fact? Perhaps with sample numbers?

Cross posting: Is it stressful being an Airbnb host? I have the option to rent out my place for about $3k a month (guaranteed on long term lease) or potentially airbnb it for about $8k a month (assuming 2/3 of a month capacity) not guaranteed. Wondering what I should go for with the least time/stress required to manage - assuming renting it out, but is it worth losing out on more than double every month?
