New Israeli Local Chapter Established

Post by Hashkaah » Mon Nov 03, 2008 9:48 am

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 forward to your PMs!

Hi Yehoshua-

This is a shot into the dark of history, but yes, I'm an aspiring Israeli boglehead.

I don't think I can sent PMs for some reason (joined only recently), so can you PM me or somehow send me your contact info?

Thanks,
Shmadas

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.

Okey, sounds interesting.
I think lot of people are surfing this forum from Israel.
I can't be the coordinator because i am not specifically using ETF based investing strategy but dividend specific stocks. Anyway, I would be glad to be part of the group.

There was a post in the last month or two by an Israeli investor with some questions about hedging shekel/NIS exposure vs USD. Might want to search, he/she might not be a regular reader but might respond to a PM

Here's the thread I had in mind: Portfolio rebalancing - different currencies

I have a portfolio divided into two currencies - ILS and USD, 30 and 70 per cent, respectively.
My local currency is ILS, so that is how I view my portfolio.

OK, there's definitely enough interest in getting an Israeli Local Chapter going. All we need now is for one of you to step up and agree to be the Local Chapter Coordinator. You can use this thread to communicate with other members regarding meeting dates, locations, times, agendas, etc.

Drop me a PM if you're willing and let's get your group up and running.

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.

There have been a number of posts from Israeli Bogleheads. You might want to contact some of these folks and let them know about the new Local Chapter.
