Portfolio Composition

General recommendations

  1. Invest in ETFs, not single stocks (Investing In ETFs)
  2. Invest “110 minus your age” into stocks, and the rest into bonds
  3. For the stock component, half should be in local-stock ETF and half in global stock ETF
    1. Global stock ETF is inherently more volatile, affected by currency
  4. The bond component should be entirely local
