As a Canadian investor I focus primarily on the U.S markets for growth and Canadian markets for dividend income being more tax efficient. In the current market environment I am focused on low volatile assets such as ETFs, REITs and a hint of growth with GOOG, BTC and private placements.
These are my current accounts I share publicly displaying the combined total value on the left and dividend income breakdown on the right.
I have built my portfolio to this level from aggressive growth single stock investing but as I head into my 30s this would make less sense. With larger amounts of capital even a basic 8% return compounds incredibly fast with a continued cost average investing strategy.
I also focus heavily on stabilized dividends as part of my back up emergency fund as seen above 45% of my income is US and 52% CAD including some high interest savings accounts and a cash flowing BTC account.
As we move forward I am continuing to cost average into the positions listed above with Google only being recently added in the last month.
Once a month I will update this to continue tracking my progress
