Re: UAE Bogleheads Meetup (Dubai & Abu Dhabi) 13/08/16

UAE/ABU DHABI- Hi UAE BH! I am hoping to organize a Meetup in -gasp- Abu Dhabi on 1 October (Saturday). This will be an informal meeting at Cafe Nero at Maryah Mall (Galleria) at 1 pm. I will put this on the Meetup Group and Facebook group. UAE BH has been going for a couple years now, but no meetin...

Master Thread for UAE Bogleheads

Hi All, I am creating a revived thread here and dubbing it the Master Thread (as the last thread just created the Bogleheads). I sometimes get emails about the Bogleheads in the UAE and so want to officially confirm our existence. There is also a newly established Facebook page (please join!). We ha...

Re: UAE Bogleheads Local Chapter Established

Thank you Mel. All in the UAE, I hope you can take part in this group. My name is Jen, I am thirty years old and I am a second-generation Boglehead. I live in Abu Dhabi, but most of the response for this group I received was from Dubai. I was hoping we could hold our first meet up this Friday for If...

Re: Reducing Expenses for Future Family

Why do people still do cable? Do you pay for internet also? Your computer with the internet on it is an entertainment machine from cheapskate heaven. There's an endless supply of free films, documentaries, and tv shows on it (without having to illegally download one thing). Ditch cable, buy a nice $...

Re: High Earners - What's Your Profession?

Attorney, specializing in construction risks analysis (people do a lot of things in this world).

I think the trick is to GO where others are afraid to. >Flash< attracts a lot of moths.

I am 30, and I have earned well over 100k for a couple years. :P

[investing for citizens of nations barred from US platforms]

[Big Frown] We really want my partner to get an index fund, or a good foot in the investment gateway. As a Syrian national, he is barred from US platforms such as Schwab or other western country ones such as TD. I am interested in if anyone has any competence on what investing to do in such a situat...

Re: GCC Chapter? Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Doha, Saudi, Kuwait, Oman

Glad to hear it. This could be quite an interesting group and I would like to seek some more GCC members. Feel free to ask any semi-Bogleheads if they'd like to be involved. Anyone else out there, Abu Dhabi/ Dubai?

GCC Chapter? Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Doha, Saudi, Kuwait, Oman?

Hi all, I am interested in spearheading a GCC Boglehead chapter (I am located in Abu Dhabi, but realize most may be in Dubai). I am looking at the rules here I believe I need to post this then get at least five willing to join. I don't know about you, but I find the GCC to be particularly void of pr...

Retirement Fund Options for Person Not from Western Country

I am intersted in if this has been discussed thoroughly before. My partner would love to be a Boglehead (okay, so the term is loose enough that he already probobly is), but as a non-US national, he is cut out of certain options (many options, such as the almighty Roth). He is not from a Western coun...

Re: Any Bogleheads in Dubai?

Well, seems like you're not here yet, but I'll put out a post seeing if I can organize a Boglehead UAE meetup. UAE is a dream come true from a tax standpoint. I didn't follow this thread tightly enough to see what your situation was, but you just want to sort with an accountant at home what you shou...

You are single with a 200k salary and hang your clothes to dry as the idea of buying a dryer is offensive.
