Spicing up the Fixed Income Portfolio 🌶

The Fixed Income portfolio has returned over 10% p.a. in the last five years, but been a little boring in the last year. It has only focussed on safety.

This, however, is only this year. The overall return of the portfolio since inception (12 Jan 2015) is about 77%, or an annualised 9% per year. Even recently, the performance has been fairly decent.

IPOs are fun but are all of them profitable too? 🧐

Did you know:

  • 1 in 4 companies that went public in the 2010 boom does not exist anymore?
  • And that more than a decade later, 1 in 2 of those companies is trading below issue price?

We looked at data on the stock performance of companies that went public in past bull markets, to see if there are any lessons for investors subscribing to 2021 IPOs.


Credit cards give free* money. (*Cruel Conditions Apply, and they make 36%) ☠️

Credit cards are good, they might tell you. But there’s something about them that you might not know, especially if you’re a first time card holder. Let’s see how they make a “sucker” out of you by charging interest for what you think is “interest free”.


(PS: If you are still thinking what the 36% return was about: Credit card companies make that much as interest and more!)
