Investment Portfolio Update #11 – Summer 2018

Fund as at 31 July 2018 = 78,285
Total Cash In = 62,597
Total Profit/(Loss) = 15,691

Summary
A switch to quarterly investment updates. My fund value has continued to climb and is now 78k, due to a good period of savings and an equal amount of investment gains.

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. Additionally I have converted from Fidelity Small UK to Fidelity Special Situations. The Small UK fund was closed for new investment and I therefore could not periodically add to my investment. Because of this it did not meet my needs and so I switched to the Special Situations fund run by the same manager.
