Investment Portfolio Update #10 – Spring 2018

Fund as at 31 April 2018 = 71,695

Summary
Straight past the 70k mark, but only just. This period saw a reduced level of savings (886 pm) and a minimal investment gain (16pm), although at least it wasn’t a loss.

I have sold a number of holdings, either as they are non-performing, to rebalance the portfolio and reduce number of holdings to keep it simple.
