First of all I apologize for the rather obvious eyeball grabbing title of this post. But hey I do have the data to back it up so maybe it is not too bad after all!
Well this is a follow-on post to the one I had done about a month ago about growing networth. That post basically talked about some data points pulled out over the last 6 years detailing the growth of my networth. As I clarified in my post earlier, this was not meant to be any indicator of portfolio performance, but merely my attempt to track one of the key indicators in my journey to financial independence and early retirement. The key reason I track my networth is to be able to understand the dynamics of personal portfolio management, and how to improve the management over time. In some sense you are the fund manager of your own personal networth (which is your own personal AUM), and you are constantly looking for ways to manage it better and nurture it to reduce volatility, and improve growth rates, consistently year over year.
