Year 5 summary, month 12: £448,767.92 up 11.65%

Arrowing pointing up2017 has been my second highest annual return in five years! The portfolio is up £33,062.72, 11.65% (returns exclude cash paid in).

The figures are a little skewed in this final summary of 2017 due to the addition of funds added to the Vantage portfolio. An original plan to add £24,000 each year has not happened thus far, so I have put some of the cash from recent property sales (£132,000) into the portfolio to make up for it.

Year 5, month 3: £288,348.44 up 3.36%

Arrowing pointing upA great month, politically there is so much going on predominantly Brexit and President Donald Trump in the US but it is certainly helping the markets. They are calling it the Trump pump! Note that I withdrew £7,135.12 from the Vantage Account, percentages below take this into consideration so may appear on the surface a little skewed.

Year 5, month 1: £283,705.20 up 15.76%

Arrowing pointing upHappy New Year. I am back on track following 2 years of zero posts, my investments have remained active this past 24 months even if my blogging has not. My plan for 2017 is to post summaries once a month plus the usual investment info that catches my interest. The numbers here are unusual due to them being compared to the last summary from the beginning of 2015 (year 3). The portfolio now has the addition of a SIPP, this is it’s first entry therefore has no change summary.

Year 3, week 1: £212,748.65 up 6.51%

Arrowing pointing upGosh, where have the last 24 months gone. Two years ago was the last time I saved my portfolio summaries and it has taken me until now to post them. My plan for 2017 is to get back into my blog, starting tomorrow on New Year’s Day with my latest summaries followed by monthly posts, weekly summaries I feel are a little over kill. So here it is, two years late, figures a little unusual as they are compared to numbers from over 5 months ago. Note that funds have been moved from Vantage to ISA (Bed & ISA) hence a big gain in one and loss in the other.

Portfolio summary, gain/loss at 01/01/2015:

Total Fund £212,748.65 up £13,006.80, 6.51%
