Short Takes: Crowdfunding Tax Issues, Index Investing Choices, and more

I wrote one post this week revealing my asset allocation and my reasoning behind it:

My Asset Allocation

Here are some short takes and some weekend reading:

The Blunt Bean Counter looks into the tax implications of crowdfunding.

Potato looks at a wide range of choices for implementing a passive index investing plan. He rates them by simplicity and costs.

Gail Vaz-Oxlade describes a life without the secret debt that comes from overspending on cars and vacations as “living in the light.” I like it.

Colleen Jaconetti at Vanguard coins the term “rebalaphobia,” the fear of rebalancing your portfolio. I think this is quite common.

Big Cajun Man reports that TD Waterhouse has made it easier to make transactions in their RDSP accounts.

My Own Advisor reviews the book The Empowered Investor.

Million Dollar Journey shows how to figure out where your hydro dollars are going.

  1. Easier to move assets around in the account, but still a pain to get money into the actual account. Hopefully fixing transfers into the account is the next step.
