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!

Read? Counting The Opportunity Cost Of Rotting Cash

How to count?

One method is to look back at his past investment portfolio performance and achievement.

Best period from 2000 to 2007 (Bull) : 12% CAGR

Worst period from 2000 to 2009 (Bear) : 1.6% CAGR

Current period from 2000 to 2018 : 7% CAGR

Future period from 2000 to 2028 : 7% CAGR

To achieve and maintain 7% CAGR till 2028; Total Return (ROC) on his current War Chest has to be at least 180% over the next 10 years!
