Portfolio Composition as on 31/3/2017

Porfolio Composition
This is the portfolio composition at the end of the financial year 2016-17

Please refer to my earlier post on my portfolio composition goals.

Again, I would like to emphasize that over a period of time, I expect to see the allocation to real estate decreasing, and the exposure to trading equity increase. I would also like to steadily add to the stock of bullion and low yield instantaneously redeemable debt in the portfolio to increase, to add to the stability of my trading business.

My goal is simple: To derive a 15-20% return on investment over the long run. I shall be quite satisfied if over several years, I am able to achieve this goal. Portfolio composition is very critical to achieving this goal. Too much exposure to “safe” low yield debt, and I would not be able to achieve the goal. On the other hand, too little exposure to instantaneously redeemable low yield debt would mean that I would not have the opportunity to invest in the market when it is down and out.
