Welcome to the latest Project 1000 update! This is where we share the progress of our 1000-day journey to freedom once a month. New readers: If you have not read our plan yet, I recommend you do so now and then come back here.
We have FINALLY cracked the 70% mark!! 🙂 We got very close a few times but never quite got there, so I’m really happy we’ve finally crossed this line. The journey to FI is all about the little victories, so this is a nice one to celebrate along the way.
Our Flamingo FI nest egg grew from 68.8% to 71.4%of its target size in November. Whoop whoop!
Shares: I received some employer shares. The share price is quite high at the moment so that helped us out a bit. In addition, we purchased a parcel of VEU. The plan is to buy an ETF parcel about once a month or so for the next year. Our existing shares in Super went up a little last month, so overall our portfolio did quite well.
Investment Property: No change.
Cash: No new funds were added last month. I am back at work now, so from next month onwards, we’ll be able to add regular cash savings to the nest egg.
This is what our current asset allocation looks like:
And here is our current split between assets inside and outside Super:
Thanks for reading! See you back here for next month’s update!
