The teams alternate until every one has a chance to act out a clue. The team with the most correct guesses wins!

Here’s Why You Should Check out Women’s Money Week 2017
Are you worried about money and don’t know where to turn?
You are not alone!
Most women feel the same way about money as you do.
74% of women feel misunderstood and confused by money messages.
1 in 3 women lives in or on the brink of poverty*.
63% of Americans say they can’t handle a $500 surprise bill.
Check out these women’s money statistics:
Less Than 20%
Fewer than two in 10 women feel “very prepared” to make wise financial decisions. Half indicate that they “need some help,” and one-third feels that they “need a lot of help.” – Financial Experience & Behaviors Among Women 2010−2011
Women own 40% of all stocks. – A.T. Kearney
The average woman spends 15% of her working years outside of the workforce caring for children and elderly parents compared to the average man’s 1.6%. – Women’s Institute for a Secure Retirement and National Center for Women’s Retirement Research
Nearly two-thirds of U.S. women ages 40 to 79 have already dealt with a major financial “life crisis,” such as job loss, divorce, the death of a spouse, or serious illness. – AARP, “Understanding Women’s Financial Needs and Behavior,” 2007 survey.
What if I said that you could earn an extra one quarter percent return on your portfolio every year by doing a simple task? A recent Wall Street Journal article reported that investors who regularly rebalance their investment portfolios increase their returns. It takes about an hour to rebalance your asset allocation and you will likely receive an added return every year. Although 0.25% isn’t huge, every bit of investment returns adds up.
Another solid reason to rebalance is to minimize risk. Even the most aggressive investor would prefer less investment volatility.
Here’s a simple example. Start out with $25,000 and don’t add another cent to your investment account.
Thus far, I’ve stuck with the market cap indexing and dipped into small cap and value indexes to capitalize on their historical outperformance. But, I’m curious to find out whether the multifactor ETFs will have a place in the “research tested” index fund investing sphere.
Hot off the etf.com press is what Sumit Roy calls “Smart Beta 2.0: Multifactor ETFs”. So, what exactly are multifactor ETFs and should you add some of these newer takes on index fund investments to your portfolio?
