June 29, 2024 - Money Matters Podcast

Why a portfolio fails, a lesson on tax efficiency, when direct indexing makes sense, and should you sell stock to boost your emergency fund?

On this week’s Money Matters, Scott and Pat discuss who is to blame when a financial plan goes south. A woman who just retired asks how she can make her portfolio more tax efficient. A New York man wants to know whether he should sell $8,000 worth of individual stocks to boost his emergency fund. Scott and Pat explain the concept of direct indexing and who would benefit from it. Finally, a California caller asks when she should withdraw money from her 457.
