I started serious Investing Journey in Jan 2000 to create wealth through long-term investing and short-term trading; but as from April 2013 my Journey in Investing has changed to create Retirement Income for Life till 85 years old in 2041 for two persons over market cycles of Bull and Bear.

Since 2017 after retiring from full-time job as employee; I am moving towards Investing Nirvana - Freehold Investment Income for Life investing strategy where 100% of investment income from portfolio investment is cashed out to support household expenses i.e. not a single cent of re-investing!

It is 57% (2017 to Aug 2022) to the Land of Investing Nirvana - Freehold Income for Life!

Counting The Opportunity Cost Of Rotting Cash

Read? Investment Portfolio Draw-down Across Market Cycles

Cash is rotting due to inflation so the opportunity cost of holding is to beat inflation rate. Uncle8888 is assuming 2.5% yearly inflation rate.

His opportunity cost for rotting cash in his war chest is .... 

the number doesn't look too scary to beat it. To generate at least 68% ROC on war chest by 2030 i.e. another 12 years for the next Big Bear!

  1. From start 2010 to end 2017:

    Opportunity cost in inflation: 18.9%

    Opportunity cost with being invested in STI ETF (dividends re-invested): 42%

    For those who believe in global diversification;
    opportunity cost with being invested in ACWI ETF: 92% (in USD, slightly lesser in SGD) excluding dividends.

    Opportunity cost for being able to sleep well at night: Priceless! ;)

    PS: Portfolio value had some roller coaster rides if you were fully invested between 2010 & 2017. Especially STI ETF!
