Asset Allocation Over the Years

I’m not proud of my changes, but I hope that keeping track of them will help me avoid doing so in the future.

World + Gold
(September 2023 –> Today)

After being on the verge of switching portfolios again to improve my returns or decrease risk, I decided that the time wasted on beating the market wasn’t worthwhile enough compared to improving my skills at work to earn more money. I was also going crazy predicting the future. I think I will try to create a system to adapt my portfolio according to the market situation. Maybe using CAPE.

I eliminated world quality because according to my analyzes adding Costumer Staples would have decreased the risk of the portfolio.

Same as losing asset allocation, but I added TIPS (Treasury Inflation Protected Securities) to diversify.

(July 2022 – January 2023)

I created this portfolio because I believe that there are some countries that, due to their political or social mentality, have what it takes to have greater returns on the stock market. One of these is America. Furthermore, I am still convinced that some sectors can give better returns under the same market conditions. IT, Health Care and Utilities are the best in my opinion. The rest of the other financial instruments serve to balance the portfolio with respect to other market conditions.
