This book is Volume 2 of Living Investment. The first volume was published in 2013.
The blog Living Investment was started when I went into early retirement in 2006. Because I was trained as an accounting and finance profession, I have experiences to share in areas of investments and retirement planning. The second aspect of Living Investment is living this life. It is a journal of personal encounters.
In the first book, I collated blog posts from 2006 to 2012. In this volume, I picked entries from 2013 to 2016. In the four years, I found it increasingly difficult to invest with good returns. It was the nature of the financial markets that were volatile because of the economic conditions faced by various economies of the world. The world has not really gotten out of the Global Financial Crisis of 2008/09.
This book is structured in chronological order and blog posts are marked by themes. It captures moments of past as major events happened, like the collapse of oil prices in 2014/15. The writing is therefore in context.
This book has three main themes:
- Financial management, investment and retirement planning
- Living tips
- Life journey
