    The (almost) Daily Dividend Pie

    Good question, I am actually doing the "man vs machine" to check exactly this as I am not sure which performs better, only the hypothetical. Here's a link to the first in the video series: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJjfSo5H-hdC1r1eOq_FUu3_8M_wikIO0

    I Interviewed 20 Leading Wealth Management Firms: Here Are All Their Strategies

    Found this write up on Reddit, I thought it was pretty interesting: "I sold a company I created, and after the press release went out, I was inundated with very gracious offers to take and manage my newfound money for fees. At the time, I presumed these wealth managers, after managing hundreds...

    Who uses premium bonds?

    I use it as my emergency fund, have about £12,500 in atm and win fairly often. The actual interest rate equivalent is pretty low still but its a lot more fun than a savings account and the money stays at the same value.

    Experts say £10,900 annual income needed to retire.

    Thats something I was thinking about the other day, was on the government website and it was saying how many years of national insurance payments I have missed and there is an option to pay into it. Weighing up if its worth paying to get a state pension if its just going to be when I'm 95 or...

    What's your most recent dividend buy?

    That's the great thing about stocks I guess, one man's trash is another man's treasure😂 . Direct line I am not so familiar with, why did you choose it over say Aviva or Legal and General?

    What's your most recent dividend buy?

    What was the most recent dividend company you bought? And more importantly, why? For me it was Rio Tinto, I think that it will be volatile from here but I want to increase my position anyway and it feels nice to average down.

    Places with ZERO income tax

    Western Sahara, Somalia etc I would rather pay significant income tax than move there. One thing to note is that tax residency is more important than where you are actually living, its not as easy as instagrammers make out. Many places have a 180 days test for tax residency but there are other...

    Rage quitting work

    I quit my job after completing the training once as they essentially did a complete switcheroo on what I had applied for after I committed to joining. I turned up to the week training and they had swapped my job role and lowered my salary, so did the paid training and handed my notice in...

    Freetrade new share offering

    As I understand it the restriction on ISA is that you aren't allowed to 'subscribe' to more than one of the same type of ISA per yer. Subscribe in this context means to open a new account or add money. I don't think you would be able to transfer a cash isa to them if you already have a S&S ISA...

    Would you rather go via a SPAC or IPO

    If you wanted your company to go public would you rather go via a SPAC or do it the old fashioned IPO way? I feel like going the IPO route has a sense of trustworthiness or authenticity that SPACs don't seem to have earned yet, what do you guys think?
