The World’s Best Places to Retire in 2018
https://buff.ly/2G7fFuz
“Where should I retire?” This is the question that we often hear people ask. The obvious answer is not always the place that we already live in. Also, being a retiree with savings and several sources of income could give you an extra advantage: You can live your retirement in more than one place.

It’s the man that, over 40 years ago, started the Vanguard Group. It’s also the inventor of the index fund, something that changed forever the investing landscape in the US and in the World.

Bogle was born in the US (Montclair, New Jersey) on May 8, 1929.

The volume of US #student #loans has hit fresh highs at $1.4tn.

$1,400,000,000,000

That number caught my attention: how is it possible to get to this point? Is it the government’s fault for setting the wrong incentives? or people just aren’t keen on other cheaper options such as public universities or online courses? Why?

How to Know When to Risk More
It’s the forecasting and evaluation of financial risks together with the identification of procedures to avoid or minimize their impact. Thus and in theory, I can use it to benefit from the upside of assets with more risk (potentially more return). While managing the downside for the overall portfolio (not getting wiped out in the process).

In practice, not that simple.

Not taking risks one doesn’t understand is often the best form of risk management.

#Blog traffic Report and Social Media Numbers
Welcome to the May blog report update!

This month I wrote 15 posts. I continue to struggle with finding the best balance between work, blog and other stuff I’m planning. It’s really hard to keep up with a calendar, but I’m trying my best to maintain the Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

I would say that if you have little time, 2 posts per week is the bare minimum. But I believe that the optimal posting schedule is 3 posts per week. Otherwise, it may feel unnatural to write just to keep the schedule and not for pleasure.

How to Manage Your #Retirement Portfolio and Strategy
Two news have caught my attention lately in the retirement world: How young people are expecting that inheritance will make sure they have money in the retirement phase; and, how the fiduciary rule can cease to exist.

Both of this articles worry me.

Retirement is like a long vacation in Las Vegas. The goal is to enjoy it the fullest, but not so fully that you run out of money.

Small, Mid or Large: Does Size Really Matter? #investing
Last week there was an article by Bloomberg, that stated the following:

“(…) The SPDR S&P MidCap 400 ETF Trust, or MDY, is the largest mid-cap ETF. Despite grossly outperforming its large-cap and small-cap fund competitors, it has the least amount of assets among the three (…)”

When I see this type of article I immediately think about two things:

- If this is true, it will cease to be in the short-term future, because the market will find out and over-allocate resources that will make that asset expensive;
- Or, someone is ‘cherry picking’ the dates to support this conclusion.

A Brief History of #Gold
Of all the precious metals, this one is the most popular. And it has been for ages. Gold’s history began in 3000 B.C. when the ancient Egyptians started producing jewellery. The Egyptians also produced gold maps – some of which survive to this day. These maps described where to find mines and various deposits around the Egyptian kingdom.
