Treasury Inflation-Protected SecuritiesEdit

In my humble opinion, it deserves its own article. Right now, it's just a section in United States treasury security. There are plenty of articles on stock brokerage firms' web sites (Fidelity, Vanguard, Schwab, PIMCO, Raymond James, etc.), but those are potentially tainted by commercial motives. I'd like to see more references to textbooks, peer-reviewed articles and the financial press. Clearly, inflation is upon us once more. Cordially, BuzzWeiser196 (talk) 11:09, 5 May 2022 (UTC)

I'm surprised TIPS don't have their own page, BuzzWeiser196. I encourage you to boldly split the section into its own page. — Ixtal ( T / C ) Join WP:FINANCE! 06:49, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
Will do. In doing so I hope to add citations to some different sources. BuzzWeiser196 (talk) 10:39, 17 May 2022 (UTC)

Question about flagsEdit

Hi again, as I've posted here before, I work for CME Group. I have a conflict of interest and I've been making some requests to fix issues on CME Group CEO Terrence A. Duffy's page. A few editors have been very helpful providing feedback and making updates, and the page is now in much better shape. The editor who most recently helped with the updates added the Paid contributions template to the page to make visible to readers that there has been involvement from an editor with a financial conflict. I understand that point. However, the Paid contributions template specifically says that the page may still need cleanup, even though editors agree that the page is in a good place. This feels confusing to readers, and to other editors who might come across the page.

What I'm curious about is if anyone here has seen a template like this to flag paid contributions that also does not indicate that the page still needs improvement? Any suggestions would be appreciated! I'm more than happy to be transparent about contributing to the page, but I can't find other examples and the indication that the page still needs cleanup feels problematic.

Thank you, Lbischel (talk) 20:24, 20 May 2022 (UTC)

Letting editors here know, I received some helpful responses from Wikiproject Templates and an editor also shared thoughts at the Terrence A Duffy Talk page, so this question has been answered.

Help with a rewrite?Edit

Is there any editor who can take a crack at rewriting the lede of Goodwill (accounting) to avoid copying or closely paraphrasing ASC 805-20-55? Unless I'm mistaken, the definition provided by the FASB is copyrighted I'm pretty sure I'm certain I can't provide a clean rewrite without butchering the meaning.

No coverage of continuation fundsEdit

I'll add it to the requests tab but in case y'all are not watching that page, I think we are sorely missing coverage of continuation funds as an aspect of private equity investment vehicles. — Ixtal ( T / C ) Join WP:FINANCE! 16:16, 8 June 2022 (UTC)

Sequoia Capital: Request for reviewEdit

Hello! I recently posted two requests to the Sequoia Capital article Talk page that I'm hoping experienced editors can review.

The first one is regarding a Senior leadership section that was recently added to the article. I'm not sure that this section is necessary, and other editors appear to feel the same way but have not yet taken any action. The second one is regarding a proposed revision of the article introduction, which I recently reposted following editor feedback.

Due to my conflict of interest (I work for Sequoia Capital) I will not make any changes to the article myself. Instead, I’m reaching out to editors active on the Sequoia article and in relevant WikiProjects.

Any comments or guidance you can provide would be much appreciated. Thank you. VS for Sequoia Capital (talk) 21:52, 21 June 2022 (UTC)

Net worth, High-net-worth individual, and Ultra high-net-worth individualEdit

Wealth management lead me to the above articles, which seem pretty terrible? They mostly seem built on weak sources, and as these sources make clearer than the Wikipedia article itself, these terms are not universal or refer to the same categories when used by different organizations and firms. They mostly seem to exist to have lists of rich people per country (unsourced, and certainly out of date.) They both need to be heavily rewritten, regardless, but anyone have any objections to merging these to Net worth, which is currently a stub and feels like it'd be a more useful place to put this information in context?

No objections to merging from me. — Ixtal ( T / C ) Join WP:FINANCE! 21:28, 23 June 2022 (UTC)
