Re: New Israeli Local Chapter Established

Thanks, Mel!

I encourage everyone who posted here and any other Bogleheads in Israel to join the e-mail forum at https://groups.google.com/d/forum/israeli-bogleheads. We can set a date and time for the first meeting of Bogleheads in the Holy Land, and see what we can do together.

Looking forward.

If you get one more Israeli Boglehead who's interested, we can establish a Boglehead Local Chapter in Israel. Let me know either here or via PM if one of you is interested in being the Local Chapter Coordinator and we'll get your group established.
Happy to learn about what we can do together.

What do I do with 2018 Roth IRA money today?

I have a Boglehead-like asset allocation in my Roth IRA. I have now about $4K, but I have already maxed out my 2017 contributions. I'd like to throw it into my Roth IRA in 2018 (along with another $1.5K, I hope to get between now and the end of 2018). The question is - what do I do with this $4K for...

Re: AA - Whatcha think - and how do I get there from here?

Thanks for the reply, bloom2708. Your portfolio feels gimmickee to me. You say that like it's a bad thing :) Why ETFs over Mutual Funds in a buy/hold investment plan? I don't have to meet minimums. Fees are as low as Admiral shares, even in funds where I might have less than $10K. Is there a reason ...

Re: AA - Whatcha think - and how do I get there from here?

First, why is all your retirement money in Roth IRA? If you have a plan at work, your portfolio should start with the work plan and you should use the Roth IRAs to fill in the holes. No work plan. One of the reasons Swenson uses 60/40 could be that the stock portion of the portfolio is pretty risky...

AA - Whatcha think - and how do I get there from here?

Currently, married 30-something with children. I'm a fan of David Swensen's book and made a modified version of his portfolio I'd like to hear your thoughts on - and how to get there from how I'm invested now. Swensen said 30% in domestic equity, 15% in foreign developed equity, 5% in emerging equit...

TreasuryDirect bond conversion: Did I make an error?

I wanted to convert some paper bonds to electronic. I went on TreasuryDirect and created a manifest for all the bonds that are primarily titled to me. I started the same process for the bonds primarily titled to my wife, and I realized I might have made an error. 1. Do I need to put the bonds in (si...

New Israeli Local Chapter Established

I am an American who moved to Israel a couple of years ago. If you are a fellow Boglehead living in the Holy Land, please contact me. I would love to setup a group that could meet periodically in real life and more regularly via an e-mail group for discussing our mutual interest in investing. Look f...
