For the 3 months in 2017, I have injected roughly 30% more into my portfolio which would have been laying low in the banks. This reduced my XIRR YTD as there are no income from the 3 months due to enlarge base. The needed injection provide needed base earning and driving for potential future performance. This left my Cash/FD now comprises 31% of my Net Worth.
Funds are injected in
- Singapore Saving Bonds funds are mainly from idle cash/fixed deposit in saving banks. They will likely my future emergency fund location.
- Reits Oversea Exposure as I still feel Singapore dollars will stay weak for some periods. This has seen good rise in price just recently.
- Five Speculative trades just entered. Each quite a sizable ones. No result yet. Time will tell.
REITs will play an even bigger role on my dividends segment in 2017 and future cash generation for my property down payments.
XIRR (Compounded Returns)
Apparently last week of market push up my score a little. However this time I am more interested in other metrics. Over the years I have been injecting funds into SSB, PS and Bonds, naturally my XIRR will lowered. If FD has been included, score would have been worst since their returns are between 1-2% range. I need to understand the overall implication and how I can fully utilize while protecting my asset.
- Correction -
Cumulative XIRR from 2007 Jan to 2017 Mar : 6.7% (Cory Portfolio )
Cumulative XIRR from 2009 Jan to 2017 Mar : 8.4% (Cory Portfolio )
whereas STI Index ( 2007 Peak to 2017 Mar ) barely hits 0.6 %.
Since my portfolio has PS, Bond and SSB, is too much work to extract out trades on them. I decided to do a manual simulation just for the past year on short term performance.
- Correction -
XIRR from 2016 Jan to 2017 Mar : 7.2% (Cory Portfolio )
XIRR from 2016 Jan to 2017 Mar : 8.7% (Cory Portfolio excluding Fresh Fund in 2017, PS, Bond and SSB)
XIRR from 2016 Jan to 2017 Mar : 12.3% (STI Index)
The first 3 months of STI Index records significant gains riding on Banks.
