Best in what way?

I use Charles Schwab

Why not VOO or QQQ?

If they perform well, might as well use them to your advantage. Originality does not always provide better returns when it comes to retirement investing.

VOO

If I want to finance a private party purchase with a car loan from a credit union, how does it work from a tactical perspective. Say I’m looking to purchase a car in the $15-20k range - my credit is good and my local CU offers 2.5% for 48 months, so it’s smart to use financing since the cash is so cheap.

How much do I get approved for? Do they just wire me the cash and I bring them the title later or do they issue a cashiers check to the seller for the exact vehicle I’m buying?

I've heard multiple people say at a certain age, it no longer makes sense to make partner. What does that even mean? I know you typically have to be a partner for 10 years to fully vest in the pension. But even if I were a partner for just 2 years, isn't it still better to be a partner? Year 1 partner comp might be almost same as your comp the year you made partner due to health insurance and buy in, but it's not like you're worse off as a partner. And you get your buy in back when you leave.

Can someone explain how it possibly makes sense to buy, purely from a financial perspective, in sf right now?

Have never lived here before so not sure if this is normal or not? Is the covid rental discount that extreme and prices are usually closer to the monthly mortgage amount?

How hard is everyone pushing their corporate clients to authorize nonresident assignees whose only 2020 US compensation was the value of their 2019 tax preparation?
My clients are pushing back on it this year, and I can't say I blame them. If I were in their shoes, I'd rather take the risk of not filing than the expense of filing again. From my own point of view, I don't really want to spend my time on such returns, either, even if the revenue and easy return are nice.

I am 31. I have $750k in assets and 400 in liab. Net worth is 350. Largest assets (excluding real estate) are 120k in 401k, 40k in brokerage, 20k in crypto, 25k cash. Own property totaling $550k (2 condos) but debt of 350k so 200k of my net worth is in real estate. Student loans of 30k. Thread continued 👇🏽

If my children don't go to college, at least I have more retirement savings.

So I’ve been sitting on a large amount of cash for too long now and will be entering the market (low cost index funds, long term play).
