Where I Invest Featured Image

Where I Invest & How Capital is Distributed Throughout Investments

Investment capital is distributed between multi-currency portfolios of Peer to Peer LendersStocks, Bonds, REIT’s, Gold and more recently Crypto Currencies & Maturing Whisky.

The investments are low maintenance, low to medium risk, with very reasonable risk/return ratios. Investments require at maximum 1-2 hours per month to maintain once they are set up.

Peer to Peer Lending Portfolio

Return on the Peer to Peer Lending Portfolio is generally between 5% & 8% (depending on lender & currency). Using lower to medium risk Peer to Peer platforms. I use Peer to Peer Lending because returns on investments are far superior to returns currently available from banks or short term government bond coupon yields.

My strategy with Peer to Peer Lending is a “lazy investor” strategy where I am looking for the best returns possible, for the least amount of work. Most of my accounts are “auto-invest” accounts where once the capital is lent out it’s really just a case of checking it every few weeks to make sure everything is going as it should.

Growth Portfolios (Stocks, Bonds, REIT’s, Gold)

The Growth Portfolios are time tested over periods of between 10 years to more than 30 years of actual investment (depending on the portfolio).  The USD portfolios are backtested through similar asset-class backtesting for almost 50 years. My main Growth Portfolio has produced an average annual return of around 16% from 2005 (not inflation adjusted), with an average drawdown of around 9% and a maximum drawdown of 14.75% in the 2008 financial crisis. Again, I like the “lazy investor” aspect of these portfolios which just need rebalancing one time per year after the initial investment.

Maturing Whisky Portfolio

(NOTE: Whisky in most places is spelt “Whiskey”, however in Scotland it is spelt “Whisky” without the “e”, so as this is where my Whisky investment is, that’s how I spell it).

I am still in the process of building my Whisky Portfolio, you can read more about it here.
