Retirement Portfolio Update

By JLP | December 28, 2006

Here’s how the Retirement Portfolio has performed so far this year:

Retirement Portfolio Update 12/28/2006

One important thing to note is the difference in fee structure. I reduced the amount of fees that I would charge on this sort of portfolio. The new total fee is now .62% (FOLIOfn fee of .27% and a management fee of .35%). The net return on the retirement portfolio for 2006 is 12.90%. Not too shabby. This compares with a 5.23% net return for 2005. Once 2006 has closed out, I’ll update the portfolio for 2007 using the final 2006 numbers.

    hey there, great effort with $1,000,000 portfolio! it seems like you have ETF on every industry, perhaps just having a SPY would be sufficient?

    Congrats on your return and your $1 million+ portfolio. I can’t wait til I get there. One step at a time, right? ;) But seriously, it’s a great motivator to see people who’ve done it and know that it’s possible for me.

    I thinks that about sums it up. Great job!

    Happy New Year

    I think JLP is trying to illustrate the growth in a hypothetical retirement portfolio invested in ETFs.

    I see you are a ETF lover. What a success in all industries.

    If I am reading it correctly, this portfolio underperformed SPY in everything but costs for CY06. Sometimes, simpler is better.
