We are 70 episodes strong! What a ride!
As you may have noticed by now, The Fat Wallet Show tries to help you figure out how to think about your money. The theory is if you understand a few surprisingly simple concepts, you have the tools you need to make great financial decisions. Once you have a handle on these concepts, you need a solid financial base. Getting that in place takes about a month, if you focus.
We discussed the things you need to understand to make a good financial decision here. To recap, they are:
- An emergency fund
- A retirement annuity or pension fund
- Dread and disability cover
- Medical aid
- A tax-free savings account
In this episode we bring everything together by telling you how to put together a tax-free ETF portfolio. We discuss diversification by asset class, region, sectors and investment strategies. This is the process we use to put together our ETF portfolios. You can subscribe to those here. We were inspired to revisit this by this slide from an S&P Dow Jones Indices.
