CalPERS considers upping fixed-income investment, lowering volatility

The California Public Employees’ Retirement System is considering more than doubling its investment in municipal bonds and other fixed-income assets while lowering volatility, according to proposals set for discussion at a workshop on Monday. The board of directors for CalPERS, the largest U.S. pension fund, with a market value of $342.5 billion, is mulling new investment strategies at a time of low bond yields, high prices and the second-longest bull market in history. Monday's Asset Liability Management Workshop at CalPERS' Sacramento headquarters is intended to give board members a sense of the potential impact and risk of each plan, spokeswoman Megan White said. 13-11-17

Do you believe Congress should first raise the income tax rate or the corporate tax rate? Congress should tax all income inheritance, investment, and labor, on the same rate scale. Using the current income tax scale for all income including investment and inheritance would be a good start at fairness. Not the same rate for all income, there should be a progressive taxation, but all different types of income should be treated equally. We should not be taxing labor the highest and inheritance and investment the lowest. That is just an insult to workers.

Tips on first time commercial/multi-family investment properties!!? not happening...you will need a LOT more..20% down plus closing costs and the income to support the mortgage on your own with tenant income.. experienced investors with other assets would be approved based on documented rental income, but not a new one. not only will you need the income to support the investment property, you will need income for your personal expenses. if a property is 100k, you will need 20k down plus closing costs and income to support it.. a multi family investment would be 20% down minimal.mercial may be different
Do I have to pay taxes for any investments that I make using money from my paycheck? It depends. If you are in the 0% to 15% tax brackets (<$50K income for a single person), then you do not owe any tax on long-term investment gains. If you are in the 25% or higher tax bracket, then the capital gains tax rate is 15%. And if you keep your "investment" for less than a year, then your net gain gets counted as ordinary income.
Wouldn't the country benefit more from spending $1.4 trillion on infrastructure than spending $1.4 trillion on tax cuts for the wealthy? Actually, no. Lower taxes on investment income increases investment income.
How much money do I need to invest to make real estate investing a full-time job? Assuming you don't own your own house, you can start right now if you have good credit. But if you have dreams of living off your real estate investments in 10 years, you need to think of another dream unless you stand to inherit a lot of money by that time. You are going to need a lot more capital to invest in anything to live off the income of the investment. While you can borrow much of the investment money over time, the money to repay these loans will take away all of your rental income leaving nothing left to live upon. Thus its more reasonable to consider investing in real estate much like an investment in anything else with an 8-10% return on investment. So if you need $100k to live on 10 years from now, you need to make another $975,000 by then.
