The TWS Salaryman Index

Over the years, we’ve been getting tons of DMs asking us for recommendations on where to put your money. 

Here’s the bad news: 

We can’t tell you exactly where to put your money in, because everyone has different needs, investment amounts and philosophies. 

Here’s the good news: 

1) We can go full-on nerd and come up with a comprehensive excel sheet so you can calculate what works best for you.

You can access those here and see how the exact calculations are made.

2) We can also create an archetype of ‘the average person’, which will be a ‘one-size-fits-most’ recommendation. So if you’re lazy you can just look at that. 

This is a work in progress, so we will constantly add new product classes in the future.
