Re: Proportions of investments towards securities and your h

Interesting ideas, I suppose the answer is that it depends on one's aims and preferences, and the most important point though is to clarify one's aims and preferences otherwise a person might end up paying for a mortgage when they get a new job in a different city as mentioned by the mobility factor...

Re: 23yo UK investor

Well if you work in the public sector it is all about budgets and public private partnerships and outsourcing to private companies. If you are a GP it's going to be fundholder- -GPs are going to be buyers of multibillion dollar healthcare budgets, shortly. If you are a vet it's all about your own p...

Proportions of investments towards securities and your house

Hi, On an earlier post (http://www.bogleheads.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=109178) I had suggestions made to me that as I am young it would be a good idea to invest to save money for a down payment to get a house mortgage. This got me thinking about what is the best way to manage one's investme...

Re: Investing option -attending discounted trading seminar?

Yes you guys make some good points and I decided that I won't go as it indeed does not seem to make sense about "why teach if trading is profitable" and so forth. My other friend will be going along to the coming up session and I'll see how he does. If he does well for a few months after t...

Re: 23yo UK investor

Thanks for the detailed reply value thinker, you've mentioned some very good points that I will implement. I didn't know that financial and accounting knowledge would be helpful in non-financial fields or when one is not self-employed. What is the reason for which it would be seen as attractive to h...

Re: Investing option -attending discounted trading seminar?

Thanks for the replies and you do make good points. To answer some of the questions: If he was really a friend, he would not charge you $100 to attend his seminar. He would let you attend at no charge. Jeff I know he charges other people thousands because he gives taster seminars where he gives the ...

Re: 23yo UK investor

Thanks for the suggestions. wriggly - It would be brilliant if you could update the UK funds section, as I find there is little unbiased (i.e., not broker websites), up-to-date, information on UK indexing. The only source I found was a blog, monevator.com, but it's good to get a mix of sources. I'm ...
