Great meeting tonight for the Des Moines chapter!

We were provided a great overview of the Life Strategy and Balanced funds from Vanguard.

We also had an overview of the different types of brokers and financial advisors.

We had a new member join the group, welcome!

Our next meeting will be the end of August/early September at the Urbandale Library.

I will post again once I have a room and date/time. Let me know if you have ideas for topics at desmoinesbogleheads@gmail.com

Thanks,
Kevin
