Investing with Vanguard for Europeans: 2020 update

(5 days ago) Investing in so many different markets with a global index fund is like an insurance product, more security will costs you money.

Stocks -- Part XXX: jlcollinsnh vs. Vanguard JLCollinsnh

(5 days ago) 1) Financial advisors are largely unnecessary. You’re investing in robust low-cost index funds. An advisor is about as useful as a teacup poodle on a mountain hike. 2) You bring up the point that VTSAX is naturally split at a pareto-principle 80/20 between S&P 500/small- and mid-cap stocks (aka, growth or value stocks).

Stocks -- Part XXII: Stepping away from REITs JLCollinsnh

(7 days ago) The idea behind international investing being a deflation and inflation hedge is that those events tend to effect single currencies and countries.
