There are two main types of IRAs:

Traditional IRAs and Roth IRAs.

There are a few things to consider when deciding which to pick, this includes contribution limits, tax implications, and your specific financial situation and retirement goals.

Let's discuss:
Keep an eye on fees:

When investing in an IRA, it's important to keep an eye on fees such as annual expenses, trading fees & account maintenance fees.

These fees can eat into your investment returns over time, so it's worth comparing options and choosing an IRA with low fees.
One key difference between the two is how they are taxed.

Contributions to a Traditional IRA may be tax-deductible in the year they are made, depending on your income and whether or not you have access to an employer-sponsored retirement plan.

Have you bought a car on the occasion of Diwali?🧨 While purchasing a car is an enjoyable process, choosing the correct insurance often becomes confusing.

Here is a short #thread on 7 things you should consider before buying #CarInsurance. (1/n)
#1 Should you take insurance from the tie-up dealer or with an outside agent?

Insurance from the dealership is often more expensive than when individually purchased. The reason is the dealer passes on the commission received on selling #insurance to the customer. (2/n)
✅What You Can Do: A prudent thing to do would be to check outside before going ahead with your dealer. This can also help you to negotiate better prices with your dealership. Policy bazaar is a great place to compare quotes from different insurance providers. (3/n)

Why is this necessary? For starters, it ensures that you stay invested for the duration needed, while also helping you decide how much you should invest in sub-asset classes like #large-cap or #mid-cap equity, low duration funds or liquid funds. (3/6)

Understanding Lifestyle Creep - A Thread 🧵

Lifestyle inflation, is overspending after your income increases.
It can occur over years and difficult to spot unless
you are on top of your budget

#personalfinance #FinancialFreedom #financialplanning #lifestyle
Basically increase in spending after receiving a raise instead of saving the additional income.

Or if monthly loan payment got over & extra cash now not saved but spent on non essential items

Once this takes over, new cash gets spent as fast as — or faster than — it comes in.
It's normal for lifestyle spending to increase when we get a better income. We want to treat yourself after working hard to make that money. Where it becomes problematic is when the increase in lifestyle outpaces the increase in income.

Educational thread: 6 Bad Financial Habits you should Avoid at all costs! Read and share:
1. Biting off more than you chew: While loans, credit cards ease your financial burden at the moment, piling them up is never a great idea. If this is your case, investing will be a distant dream.
2. Bad credit score: Most Indians are unaware of how credit scores are calculated. Even simple things like not paying bills, late payments can reflect adversely on your credit score. This can backfire in your future, if you apply for loans.

Too much, too soon, too fast!

Everyone knows the investing duo of Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger. But 40 years ago, there was a third member, Rick Guerin. The three made investments together.
Then Rick kind of disappeared while Warren and Charlie became the most famous investors of all time

A few years ago, hedge fund manager Mohnish Pabrai asked Buffett what happened. Rick, Buffett explained, was highly leveraged & got hit with margin calls in the 1970s bear market.
Some things scale well. Double their size & you get double the output (or more).Other things don’t, & it is important to know which is which.

A good summary of investing history is that stocks pay a fortune in the long run but seek punitive damages when you try to be paid sooner

OK, some people in Aussie #FinServ are clearly unsettled by Vanguard's decision to boldly have a crack (again) at #superannuation.

So I'm gonna break it down in this thread.

I may be on the money, or way off base. You decide.
It's important to note that @vanguard_au was its first presence outside the US.

From memory, around 1995-96.

So this hasn't exactly been an overnight success story.

For much of the first two decades, & paying $0 commissions, it was broadly shunned by #financialplanning.
The prize that lured Vanguard to Australia was #superannuation.

But the cost of client acquisition for retail is high.

Funds without a dedicated salesforce (or default status) struggle.

Plum, the corp super JV with MLC, was a bit meh for market penetration.

A thread on
#CreditCards a " Yes" or a "No" ?

Decided to write an honest opinion on the usage of credit cards & whether it is "As bad as it made out to be" or "That good as claimed" !!

Disclaimer: This is MY experience & my opinion on the issue addressed at hand .
Points in favour
1) #Convenience !!
2) Lot of reward points .Yay!
3) Usage at airport lounges & movie tickets & the likes (subject to T&C)
4) Extra time to repay the debt. Duh !! Who doesn't like that!
6) Kind of a status symbol . Mere paas AMEX card hai ,
hain.... 😎
Points against usage

1) Too much convenience results in thriftness. We end up spending much more.
2) Reward points come with a host of T&C. Are we actually being rewarded also ?
3) Freebies to keep our inflated ego in check . Many a times changed/stopped overnight! 🤷
