Episode 004: Bogleheads on Investing - guest Christine Benz, host Rick Ferri
Christine Benz is our guest in Episode 4. This information packed podcast with guest Christine Benz, CFP®, Moringstar's Director of Personal Finance covers a lot of important material. We discuss how 2018 tax reform impacts year-end tax planning, the double-whammy of taxes on mutual fund capital gain distributions in a year when funds lost money, tax loss harvesting and tax gain selling, using a bucket approach "overlay" to better understand how all the pieces of a portfolio work together, caring for elderly parents, advisers and fees, and much more!
