Re: TransferWise

Re: Trading UK Shares as non UK Resident

You only purchase 25% of your total investment (e.g $2,500 out of $10,000) and rebalance monthly/quarterly. You could mix the commodities allocation with silver (using a ratio) but it still requires...

Re: New Baby/ passport

That was a quote for the UK average - I wouldnt have a inkling on the pricings for rugrats in UAE. Shame we had to outlaw using sprogs as chimney sweeps !

Scamp hit the nail on the head (as well as MillHouse). For the vast majority of (healthy) people CV is no worse than the flu.

The number of deaths will increase (i have a spread on 1.8m - 2.2m)...
