    Yes debt free own home great target for any new investor ... in my case I did that via selling large new build home in higher-priced area and shifting the family to a quieter local with much cheaper property(which now has become much more expensive!!)

    this allowed us to buy debt-free and free up some capital to trade with ... also if your planning on becoming a trader and taking on some leverage via bank loans to your share trading company then you can access Res rates using your own home equity .. and of course this interest will be a tax write-off

    ....also as you will see from my 10x resource stock picks I have a bias with PGMs ... this is because these metals have been sold-off heavily over the last few years yet demands will be outstripping supply esp in Platinum and think these very rare metals will head much higher in the years ahead

    .I also think Uranium / Lithium have their case in a resource portfolio ..but haven't got one I think at present makes the lists as a better investment ... SBSW does have these minerals in the portfolio (go view my SBSW post in the overseas market thread)

    worth a watch on PGMs

    I'm at the point where I have over 500K but less than a million, a bit of that in KiwiSaver but expecting further boosts into the future.

    Chris Lee offers what looks like an interesting option.

    Happy for DMs for recs.
    My main KiwiSaver fund - Milford Active Growth - over the previous five years returned about 9%pa after tax (28%pir). That was slightly better than my own portfolio. The previous five year period my own portfolio did better. There is if course less work involved with the KiwiSaver fund.

    So the non-KiwiSaver version of that could be worth considering if you are time poor.

    No mortgage, but donít see benefit in rental.

    Thatís my main KS (has been good to me) and have now changed all future contributions to their Aggressive. Use Harbour for NZ/Aus and Global as well. And Kernel for index global. JBMurc caused me to reflect on backing myself. I do better than the fundies I use, I think mainly from reading and the lessons learnt from ST, like stoploss settings and walking away. Iím going to simplify my individual shares to better see the wood from the trees. Down to one global BRK which I buy like clockwork. Weirdly a share that doesnít appear in any funds I have (or that I know of)

    Thanks JBmurc, just wondering how you identify those companies in the first place? Do you use some sort of software etc?

    I hold a few others but real spec shares I wouldn't recommend for BUY n HOLD longer term as much riskier low cash base explorers ..but could 10x bagger etc

    "LOL I never went to UNI and have any qualifications .. certainly far FAR from the smartest sharetrader around..but I have come up with systems that seem to work

    The simplest method I work with is the "EFFORT TRADER" in my core focus "RESOURCES"



    It is all about consuming large quantities of information.. weekly week after week year after year decade after decade


    I don't use stop-loss orders every morning bar SUN-MON I check 25x market instruments . ... gives me rough ideal how the day will flow... then on average I'll focus at least 2-3hrs in the weekday mornings on Marco market events/world events /commodities etc

    Weather depended..Golf / GYM 2-4 mornings a week after this ...

    A BIG weekday day

    -Midday to 5-6pm ... Micro-focus on my portfolio 12-15x stocks

    break dinner hang with kids

    if I feel much more MICRO/MACRO INFO I want to take on work again from 9PM to midnight ...

    Generally like to play COMP GOLF WED so much fewer hours maybe 3-4hrs

    weekends maybe around 10hrs

    but on average I reckon I spend between from 50hrs to 70hrs pw focusing on the resources stocks ///Macro etc

    ...Now much smarter people could prob take much less time but my brain needs time and repeat info to soak it in .. also some of my time is just like this post talking about the markets reading books etc

    So you could say the harder I've worked the luckier I've got ..

    I see two financial advisers once a year as a "sanity check" to do a review of the portfolio in terms of portfolio structure and portfolio asset allocation. We review this stuff at both the strategic and tactical levels.

    Each has their own skill set and their own combination of strengths and weaknesses, and I regard them as being complementary. I pay them for their time - they're not managing my portfolio for me.

    I have a number of benchmarks, and once the benchmarks are consistently beating me, then it's time for me to pack it in and let the "experts" work their magic. But until then. . .

    .
    That is a fantastic idea. I had never considered that strategy. Do you go armed with data showing what has happened?

    Of course - a copy of the Investment Strategy, a copy of the year's Tactical Plan and amendments, and performance by portfolio segment, asset class, and individual security against strategy, target, and benchmark(s).

    After all, they can't do anything useful without that stuff.
