E chi ci pensava più a Pamela Prati? Nessuno, neppure lei probabilmente. Ma ad aprile è scoppiato il «caso Prati», o «Pratiful», e non si parlava d'altro. La sensazione, però, era che nessuno abbia capito bene i passaggi, i personaggi e i motivi della vicenda. Da Matteo Salvini, che pochi giorni prima delle elezioni europee ha detto di non averci capito nulla, a mia mamma, che non segue, è ora di ascoltare il podcast Pratiful, che prova, in brevi pillole, a spiegare questo intreccio dove si ...

The Fat Wallet Show is a show about questions. It’s about admitting that we don’t know everything, but that we’re willing to learn. Most of all, it’s about understanding as much as we can to make us all better investors. Phrases like, “I’m not sure” or, “Let me look that up and get back to you” or, “I don’t know” don’t exist in the financial services industry. If you ever had a financial question you were too embarrassed to ask, you know what we’re talking about. In this business, appearance ...

There’s more than one way to raise taxes. You can subject yourself to the ire of the masses by being up-front about it, or you can eke out little tax wins on the sly.

Investing history teaches us success is all about asset allocation, as Grant Locke explains in this presentation. History is unfortunately annoyingly silent on what precisely the best asset allocation would be. Where does that leave those of us investing for the long haul? Should we pick a mix and stick to it? Should we adapt our asset allocation m…
 
If you see someone jumping off a waterfall for fun, and they survived it, would you do it, too? Here’s where my friends and I are different. A lot of them LOVE ... just love things like this. Things like roller coaster rides. You see, every single time I go up a ride like that, I lose all senses below my chest. It’s like the only thing I can feel i…
 
Although they’ve fallen out of fashion, we like retirement products. In addition to a generous tax break, retirement funds prevent us from cheating our future selves out of money to do luxurious things like live indoors and eat food. That said, if you’re prioritising investments, retirement products might not be the best place to start, as Dylan po…

Back when I had to go into a big grey office building and clock in every day, I remember something very specific about the end of the year. It wasn’t so much the merriment of the end of the year (though that does come into play). It was that left and right, I'd notice different kinds of people show up. Kind A: The ones that binge-consume simple ple…
 
In our second Fast Fatty, we spoke about Suzanne’s PPS account. PPS felt our assessment of their product was inaccurate. We offered them a right of reply. Read their reply here.

I remember years ago, I had gone back to my hometown to visit my family. They wanted to throw this huge party and feast to celebrate. It had been a long time since I saw my grade school friends and people that I knew. Years, actually. So when the time came for everyone to hang out, I was a bit embarrassed. I was super jet-lagged. The time differenc…

One of my students came up to me once and asked me, “Thalia, how do you know when to go for the ask?” Whether this is about asking for a job, or asking for someone to buy what you have--this is probably as tricky as protocols on asking someone to move in with you or deciding how not to offend the neighbor who has been WAY too loud at night. It’s li…

So my kids used to go to sleep kicking and crying. They’d throw a hissy fit for over an hour, and I’d try everything in my might not to make them even more upset—often with little success. Of course, this meant that I wasn’t sleeping much either. Everyone hated it. Then one day as I was driving my newborn to the store to grab something, I dozed off…

You know what’s sometimes really weird about trying to find a solution to our problems? Is that we tend to hear the same things over and over again. I felt this way once when I was really looking for ways that I could get more things done without simply adding more things to my day. I realized that I wasn’t making time for important people in my li…
 
With Simon celebrating his birthday on the beach, this week’s episode is a tax bonanza.

I don’t know if you’ve seen the video of a cougar who followed a hiker outdoors recently. But it’s been making the rounds among a lot of my friends who regularly spend time outside.

Greg I thought about starting an investment with a 100- year time horizon. A lot can happen in 100 years. Maybe we don't use money anymore. Maybe earth explodes. Who knows? But if things still kind of resembl…
 
We spend a lot of time thinking about building an asset base and which assets we should be buying. As you approach financial independence, getting rid of assets starts to present problems.

Here are some tips to get you going: Find out if the company or product is registered with the Financial Services Conduct Autho…
 
I remember a time when I was in Las Vegas. I was putting on my PJs when my phone dings. It was a text from a respectable leader whom I’ve been wanting to meet. The text read: “If you’re free, I’m having a private happy hour. Let me know if you want in!” If you know me well, though, you know that I’m a total introvert. The only reason I was in Vegas…
 
Much of what makes investing confusing is that we use different terms to talk about the same thing. This is so frustrating for beginners. This week, we tackle jargon head-on. Not only do we tell you which terms are used interchangeably, but also what they mean. Here are the terms we discussed: Stocks, equities, shares. Stock market vs stock exchang…
 
If you’ve known me for a long time, you know that I used to be super shy, quiet, and would avoid conversations that I know I needed to have. I don’t know where this came from. It might’ve been the playground insults that happened whenever I tried to raise my hand and said something. Yeah, I was that little Asian kid who just stayed out of trouble m…
 
When you’ve gotten your debt and spending under control, it can be comforting to hold on to your free cash for a while. Taking the leap from that safe pile of money to the Big Bad Market is not easy. However, as we’ve discussed before, cash is not a risk-free investment. The longer you sit on a lump sum of cash, the more risky it becomes. This is b…
 
How many times have you heard people say to you, “work hard” or “hustle harder”? Plenty probably. But as your life changes, you might start to realize that those old rules are not something you can (or care to) keep up with. If you get to fast forward your life in 10-20 years, would you honestly want still be doing the grind? So then the question n…

This week we think through some of the mistakes new investors fear most…
 
Recently, I was given the opportunity to traverse through some river rapids. Before outdoor adventure became one of my favorite things to do, I thought there’s only ONE way to do it. As in, if you’re in the water, it’s just plain dangerous. I had NO idea that there were levels of danger, and the corresponding skill sets you must have. It’s like the…
 
I’ve been avoiding talking about endowment policies, because what even are they? I haven’t come across one in my own investment life. This week, a question from Sandile sent me down the endowment road. I had fun with it. I got the Tax Elves involved. They had fun with it. Fun was had by all. Endowments are the love child of insurance and investment…
 
Most of us kick our 20-year-old selves for spending all our money making poor decisions in Melville instead of taking full advantage of compounding. The financial independence, retire early (FIRE) movement has given us valuable tools to reach our financial goals despite those late nights in Melville. I discussed that with FIRE-man Patrick McKay her…
 
Today, I want to talk about some favorite books of mine that have changed my life.

If you are hitting a ceiling and you feel a bit stuck, here are my t…
 
There’s more guesswork involved in retirement planning than we’d like to admit. If you’ve ever gone through the retirement planning process with a financial advisor, you know what I mean. To calculate how much money you’ll need for retirement, you need to factor in the expected inflation rate as well as the expected growth rate of your investments.…
 
I remember a time when I was sitting in a meeting with three other guys in suits in a room with grey concrete walls. The meeting was going on and on and everyone was starting to get fidgety. The door opened and in came the top dog’s secretary, who said that so and so was there to meet him. Five minutes later, she came back in to give him another no…
