Damien’s portfolio update: I made back the cost of an 80-20 Investor subscription in just 2 weeks

9 min Read Published: 04 Apr 2015

Over a month has passed since I did something that, as far as I am aware, no other investment commentator or analyst has done, that is to invest £50,000 of their own money in the public domain.

The reason I did it was so 80-20 Investor subscribers can learn how to run their own money and get the best out of 80-20 Investor.

So how have I done so far?

I started this exercise by emphasising that this is a multi-year project (5-10 years). Also given that I invested right at the top of the market (the point at which most stock market indices have hit all-time highs) I was prepared for the portfolio value to dip below £50,000 in the short term.

The reality is that the portfolio is sitting on a profit of £917.62 after just the first month (as at 3/4/2015).
