Portfolio Two is our second longest lived portfolio. This portfolio has been converted to ETF’s and a CD. Beneficiary investment is $6500, trustee investment is $13,000 for a total of $19,500. Current value is $34,290 for a gain of $14,790 or 76%, which is 7.8% over the life of the fund annualized. Go here or to the link on the right for the portfolio detail.
This portfolio is different from the others in that there is a 1.55% CD for $10,000 and the rest are ETF’s. The largest ETF is VTI (US total index) with VEU (all world ex US) and HEFA (non US, hedged). We also have a small position in IBB for biotech. All seem to be doing well.
It is a symptom of ZIRP that our CD returns less than the US or European stock funds, which are around 2.5% / year.
