Managing your medical school loans is one of the most important first financial steps that a medical school student or resident needs to take care of. You need to have a student loan plan of action. Our guest today, Ben White, from https://www.benwhite.com/, wrote what I consider to be THE book on student loan management, called Medical Student Loans: A Comprehensive Guide, (get it for free at https://www.benwhite.com/studentloans/. When he started thinking and writing all about medical school loans there just was not that much information out there. He understands some of the history behind medical school loans, how things have changed, and has suggestions for how to handle the changes that could come in the future. He considers student loans to be a "gateway drug for personal finance education." For a lot of students, the moment that the monopoly money becomes real is the first time they have really been forced to confront these issues. We talk all about medical school loans in this episode. If you still have loans or work with students or residents that do, this is a an episode you don't want to miss. See the full show notes at https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/classic-blog/

Should you raid your Roth IRA to pay off your student loans? No, I think raiding your Roth IRA for any reason is a bad decision. You only get so much Roth space in your life. Raiding the Roth IRA for anything except retirement is not a good idea because that money is compounding tax-free for years, and the longer you let it do that, the more valuable that benefit becomes. But the Roth IRA has other benefits too. It is great for estate planning. Even with the recent changes in the estate tax laws, you can still stretch a Roth IRA for 10 years after you die. So basically it can double in value before anyone has to take anything out of it. Plus you can name a beneficiary for it, so rather than having to wait for it to go through a will and go through probate and become public, it just goes straight to the beneficiary. It is also very good in almost every state for asset protection. Money in retirement accounts is generally not touchable in the event of an above policy limits judgment that isn't reduced on appeal. That is another great reason not to raid your Roth IRA, especially to pay off a loan that goes away when you die. We discuss this question of raiding your Roth IRA in more depth in this episode as well as discuss the state of this podcast in the last year including the best and worst episodes we've put out and a long rant on podcast guests and questions.

This episode we discuss advantages and disadvantages of investing in private real estate access funds. What are the advantages of access funds over syndicated real estate deals? How much of your portfolio should be invested in private real estate funds? These are the types of questions that we discuss in this episode with Alan Donenfeld, founder of CityVest. https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/cityvestarixa 

Regular readers and listeners will know that I have been investing more and more in real estate the last few years. I am not a big fan of owning direct real estate and all the hassle that goes with that. But real estate can be a great addition to your portfolio. Most of the private real estate funds require an initial investment of $250K+. That is not feasible for most physicians, not to mention people typically want to dip their foot into real estate funds with a smaller amount of money. The big value of access funds is they provide you an opportunity to invest in private real estate by providing access at a decreased minimum amount. For those interested in investing in real estate this can be a great oppoortunity.

If you want to hear more about these types of investments that are discussed in this podcast, make sure you are signed up for the White Coat Investor newsletter https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/free-monthly-newsletter/. You may already be part of our newsletter, but you may not be signed up for this Special Real Estate Opportunities list. It is totally free. You can opt out at any time. I'm not going to spam you. If you notice in any email I send you there is a real estate opportunities newsletter at the bottom that you can add. If you want to hear about these sorts of investments, I'll send you details as soon as I hear about them, so you can be one of the first to know.

If you’re like most doctors, nobody taught you anything about personal finance or investing during your undergrad, professional school, or residency.
