 Forum: Personal Finance   Topic: advice on financial/investment planners?

hello! So my husband and I have increasingly large incomes, which I'm not at all complaining about, but we have more money, literally, than I know what to do with, despite all the time I've spent reading GRS. :-) We decided we need to get professional consultation on how to deal with our assets. I w...

The bond fund I have is called VBIRX, it has "Short Term" in the name so I'm pretty sure it's short term. The expense ratio is only 0.11% so I don't think it can be very actively managed. The 1 year yield has been 3.42% and since inception, 3.89%, so that seemed pretty good to me, unless I...

I have been a landlord (DIY) before. It had its good points but it was also kind of awful, mostly because I was such a newb. Good points: - I lived in an area/had a place such that I could charge enough for rent to cover the mortgage and property taxes. I wasn't really making much on the place but I...

p.s. it may be germane to the situation to mention that I have over $100K in loans from my graduate education, most of which I'm paying 4% on, then maybe $40K of which I'm paying 2.75% on. Right now I pay $1800 monthly on the loans and I intend to continue doing that, wasn't going to step up the pay...

hello folks. You were so helpful with my municipal bond question that I am back with more. I'm stuck regarding what to do with my money right now and looking for advice. My current situation is very good. I have a pretty high income. - Almost maxed out my 403(b) for the year - Income too high for Ro...

hello, been a bit of a delay in my response here but I wanted to say thank you to those with thoughtful responses who didn't assume some basic financial knowledge was "beyond my grasp" - the explanation made perfect sense to me, thanks. I did receive the e-mail out of the blue but it was a...

hey GRSers... I recently got an offer via email from some local organization that's trying to sell municipal bonds. The handout on the bonds says: Sec Type: Muni Coupon: 4.00% Maturity: 11/15/2041 Price $99.575 Yield to Maturity: 4.024% Yield to Worst: 4.024% Modified Duration: 17.233 TEY: 6.191% Pr...

I was intrigued when I stopped back in to find that the comments on this post has stretched onto a second page, when I came to find that very little of it had to do with the question.... :-) simmer down folks. This is meant to be a friendly place. From what I see of the initial responses, it looks l...

Just when I think I understand these accounts, some new situation comes up and I get confused. So - last year, for the first time ever, I was making too much to contribute to a Roth IRA (I made around $200K in 2011). Exciting! I met with a financial counselor and she advised me to put $5K into a tra...

Thanks for the responses. @Tightwad and bpgui: That's what I was thinking of doing, but I wasn't sure if it was worthwhile. Would that be the logical next step given my constraints? I've heard talk of a few other less common investment vehicles for retirement and just was curious because I've never ...

What do you recommend, if I cannot invest in Roth IRA (income now too high) and I cannot contribute to my 403b outside payroll deduction?

Tarun, I have another idea for you as well. I bet you could achieve your goal without going thru all the paperwork and red tape if you just become a board member of someone else's small foundation. This could be relatively easy to do because you already fit the requirements that most people are look...

Tarun, 501(c)(3) is not easy to obtain. It takes months and it takes a lot of paperwork. I have a 501(c)(3) and it took me forever to fill out the forms and put together everything that was needed. Your organization has to have a constitution, bylaws, a board of directors. Ideally you should incorpo...
