re: Traditional IRA deductions - AugustaTiger
You need to do a re-characterization of this years contributions into a Roth IRA. If you don’t do this you will have a “basis” in your IRA where some of the money will come back to you as “return of principal” and not be taxed in retirement. This requires advanced record keeping and tracking by ...

Travel Backpack for daily use - AugustaTiger
Do any of y’all have a travel backpack that you really like for when you are out and about adventuring? Not like a backpack for backpacking through Europe- just one to use when out and about exploring a destination. I’d like something that doesn’t allow for pickpocket to rummage through while it...

re: Fixed index annuities - AugustaTiger
I’d just take the cash and put it into a basket blue chip dividend paying stocks. Reinvest the dividends. Your heirs will get a step up upon your passing. They could choose to get a lump sum of cash or they could use the dividend income to live off of. That’s how you maximize the value given...

re: Fixed index annuities - AugustaTiger
Some of them won’t allow you to take income during the first 10 years of a contract. If they are showing rates of 3.5-4.0% you will average 2%. They often update their marketing literature to cherry pick an index that doesn’t really exist. You can read the fine print to find out the date the...

re: 401k "advising" - AugustaTiger
Make sure you have a default investment vehicle like a target date fund. I wouldn’t give any advice to employees as an employer. Let the plan administrator come in and do the education (fidelity, principal, mass mutual, or the advisor on the plan). You don’t want that liability on your han...

re: Making big money in finance? - AugustaTiger
That’s tough. How old are you? If under 30 and less than 3 years out of school- try applying as an associate or analyst at an IB. You will have to move somewhere around the globe. Keep your options open to move to NY/ London/ Hong Kong etc. If you aren’t into moving and making that big change yo...
