Growth Portfolio Returns

Growth Portfolio Returns

 

Below are the results of the Growth Portfolio started on June 1st 2018 so it can be tracked in real time here on my website. I decided to start this separate portfolio at the same time I started my Peer to Peer Lender Portfolio giving both portfolios similar balances so we can see the actual returns of each on a monthly basis. I have been investing in these assets, with this exact portfolio distribution, for over 20 years. This is where most of my personal investment capital still resides.
