Introducing the Beginner Investor Educational Series
I will be creating a free educational series to teach YOU about the basics of investing your money and how to get started no matter if you have an initial investment of $1,000, $10,000, or more. The topics will be relevant to everybody who has just started working or is in the prime of their working lives. I may give specific examples that may be more relevant to Delayed Earners such as physicians.
Should I pay my student loans first or invest in the market?
This is a common question that I get from my colleagues. To answer this question, I use a statistical approach to provide a conservative estimate of the threshold at which you would define as your "high-interest debt." If a loan has an interest rate higher than this, then you pay it down first. If the interest rate is lower, then you invest in the markets first.
