When it’s time to invest, how do you choose between all of the choices out there? We dive into a topic that YOU chose (if you’re a member of our Facebook group), and we also augment it with a fantastic headlines discussion with Rachel Aguirre from iShares about exchange traded funds. What are “ETFs” as they’re called, and how are the different than other investment types, like mutual funds? We dive deep into investing nerdery on today’s show.
But of course, that’s not all. We’ll talk margin accounts on the Haven Life line. Can you get rich quicker using money you borrow from your broker? We’ll have opinions.
The biggest news? During the vote you also thought we needed to chat about “Doug, the Untold Story.” We bring you portions of the documentary on the topic as well as Doug’s World Famous Trivia segment, just to keep things lively.
Deeper dives with curated links, topics, and discussions are on our newsletter, The 201, available at StackingBenjamins.com/201.
