Yearly Financial Review: 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 […]

Emergency Fund Review As my emergency fund grows to around 3 months worth of expenses, I’m starting to think about how to allocate future contributions. I think a good emergency fund should do two things: The first is obvious! It should provide income incase of unexpected job loss, or a source of funds in a […]
