What general market trends do we see during election seasons? What usually happens if a Republican president wins a second term? What usually happens if a Republican president were to lose to a Democrat? If the office were to change hands, what is the usual market trend during the lame duck period and also just after a new president takes office? More importantly what should you do with your portfolio based on these trends? We dive into this past market data in this episode, find some interesting trends, and give some warnings on what you should do.

Spoiler: Please don't make any huge changes to your investing plan based on how the election is going, what is in the political news, even what is in the economic news.

Practicing evidence-based medicine is important to physicians, looking at data and changing our practice according to it. Our guest in this episode, Larry Swedroe, has been a proponent of evidence-based investing for a long-time. His teachings have affected me over the years and certainly affected my portfolio construction. In this interview we talk about the limited data set in finance in comparison to other more scientific fields and how much we can rely on that retrospective data going forward. We discuss portfolio construction, alternative asset classes, recommended strategies for spending down assets in retirement, and investment mistakes smart investors make. Are you a smart investor? Find out in today’s episode.

What does it take to become a millionaire? Hear the experiences of seven millionaires in this episode talk about how they did it. You may recall we did our first episode with physician millionaires the start of 2020. People loved hearing from these successful doctors and what they did to win financially, but they wanted more women represented. So all seven guests today are female, 6 physicians and an engineer. We talk about similar stuff to what we did last episode, how they did it, their mindset, what their money is invested in, but also discuss what it is like as a woman to have a career as a higher earner and be able to build wealth. Did their gender hold them back in that pursuit or not? What were their keys to success? What advice do they have for those who are a decade or two behind them, wondering, “can I, as a woman, become a millionaire still? If you go and look at the data, it is a pretty small percentage of physicians in their 60s that have a net worth more than $5 million. It is awesome to have several all in one episode to learn from. Enjoy!

What changes when you make partner? When you become a partner, you go from being an employee to being an owner. So, there are lots of financial changes. See the full show notes here https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/classic-blog/ I'm a big fan of ownership and think generally becoming a partner is the right move for your career. There are more risks and hassle to being a partner but more rewards and profits as well. We discuss the advantages and responsibilities to becoming a partner in a practice including getting K-1s instead of W-2s, making quarterly estimated tax payments, writing off legitimate business expenses, paying for your own benefits and understanding retirement accounts available to you. In this episode listener questions are also answered about losing faith in long term market returns, being an accredited investor, value tilting your portfolio, what to do with your cash, tax gain harvesting, and the pro-rata rule.

Provider Solutions & Development is a community of experts dedicated to offering guidance and career coaching to physicians and clinicians throughout their entire job search. Whether you are looking to dive deeper into your specialty work, strive towards a healthier work-life balance, or a little bit of both, they can help find the right fit for you.

What is it like to practice medicine in Australia? Our guest in this episode walks us through the training and practicing of physicians in the land down under. We talk about what the medical system is like in Australia as well as how physicians are compensated. From time to time we bring doctors on the show from other countries, we've had a British physician and a doctor who trained in Venezuela on. It is fun to dive into the medical world of another country. Sometimes in the U.S. we get these almost blinders on and think we're the only country in the world. We don't really realize that there are a lot of lessons that could be learned from other countries, that we can really apply in our own lives to simplify both our medical system and our financial system. I think you will find this interview really interesting.
