    166: Is Vanguard Losing Its Status?

    166: Is Vanguard Losing Its Status?

    I love Vanguard. I think it is great to have a real mutual fund/brokerage company that is owned by the investors and run at cost. Fidelity and Schwab are now competing with Vanguard on price by offering their index funds at a lower expense ratio. But is that a reason to move your assets away from Vanguard? I don't think so and I talk about why in this episode. But Vanguard has it's issues and I discuss those in this episode too.

    164: Why You Should Max Out Your Retirement Accounts

    Maxing out your retirement accounts will make estate planning easier, give you better asset protection, you'll pay less in taxes, all while your investments grow.

    162: Are Side Gigs Mandatory for Doctors?

    162: Are Side Gigs Mandatory for Doctors?

    Do doctors need a side gig? No. But it certainly can ease the stress that comes from changes in your physician income beyond your control, like with this pandemic. But living like a resident, saving and investing appropriately can also do that. I think each of us needs to find a balance and realize that if you will carve out a chunk of your income and invest it in some reasonable way, you'll be okay. Doctors make enough money that if they will just manage the money well, they don't need a side income.

See the full show notes here https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/classic-blog/ We have talked about medicine and finance in other countries, but they're usually very developed countries.
