We have just passed the half way mark for 2015. Are you bruised by your financial assets performance? Well, I suffered some bruising, but nothing serious yet.
Performances of some were:
1. Singapore equity portfolio was down 7.8% from costs.
2. Australian fixed deposit down 15.3%.
3. Templeton Global Total Return Fund A(Mdis) SGD-H1was down 8.7%.
On a total portfolio basis, the overall reduction in value was 1.68%.
The above did not consider income earned and realised capital gains on financial assets. The total actual return on fund at half way mark was 2.02%.
This year seems to be a difficult year with volatility compared with previous year. I am not too certain how 2015 will end. Stay vigilant and keep an eye on your financial assets.
