Yearly Financial Review: 2017

Posted on

Read the 2015 financial review here and the 2016 financial review here. 2017, a tale of two halves. I am sure that for a lot of us in the personal finance blogosphere, analysing our yearly expenses might seem slightly extravagant, somewhat obsessional and maybe superfluous. Alas, I’m a details and gestalt guy, and my curiously obsessional side is […]

Yearly Financial Review: 2016

Posted on

2015 financial review here. This post is of course, a little late. I’m posting my 2016 financial review primarily because in early January 2018, I’ll review my finances for 2017 and wanted a point of reference for the years prior. I believe reviewing your finances on a yearly basis is enough of a balance for most […]

Dividend Harvest – September 2017

Posted on

I received dividends from one company, Cadence Capital Ltd. I held shares in Cadence during 2013/14 which were enrolled in a DRP, and following a poorly timed sale I ended up with a residual of 2 shares valued at […]
