I decided to add our StocksCafe portfolio back onto the blog. After all, I’m now a paid subscriber and I might as well display it as a monitoring tool for myself too. Anyway, I added in several USX transactions to simulate the StashAway and Smartly robo-advisor accounts investments in US-listed ETFs. They are not going to be accurate in terms of average purchase prices and number of units since I’m only entering them in at the end of each month to approximate the accounts values.

The useful part about having these US-listed ETFs on our StocksCafe portfolio is that I can better track the dividend payout dates and amounts. I know the dividends are being re-invested but I might still include them as passive income on my Google Sheet. And I get a more complete view of the local and global components of our portfolio in one snapshot i.e. Singapore ETFs vs Foreign ETFs.
