ILAB 09 – Sam and Johnny’s Investment Updates July 2016



Sam and Johnny Share their July 2016 portfolio  including Wealthfront, Lending Club, Betterment, PeerStreet, REIT’s, Foreign Exchange, stocks and index funds. As Johnny travels through Europe he talks about why he cancelled his auto investment with Wealthfront, direct Vanguard deposits and wiring $10k to Brian at the Art of ForEx. Sam reviews his back up plan if Lending Club goes bankrupt and why his Wealthfront account is crushing over his Vanguard and Etrade accounts.

We also talk recap some highlights of the past 8 episodes and what to expect going forward. Lastly we discuss the incredible value having access to multi- million dollar investors in the Boss Lounge.
