Given my propensity for procrastination, I think we would be more than halfway through the year by the time this post is up😅. Nevertheless, I still want to pen my thoughts and provide an update on how my investments have been doing so far. Doing so allows me to look back on some of the lessons learnt and take stock of my own performance so far. As such, without further ado, let’s get into my very own mid-year investment review.
Unless you have been living under a rock, you would know that the world is currently fighting a global pandemic. The Covid-19 pandemic, coupled with the drastic fall in oil prices triggered a stock market crash in March. This resulted in major indices all over the world recording losses of more than 20% from the highs recorded in February. Naturally, my own investment portfolio also took a hit, declining by as much as 25% at one point.
