The purpose for owning the portfolio is to enable investors to grow their net worth at a faster pace than peers, so as to ascend the rankings of ultra-high net worth individuals. In order for such a goal to be successful, the portfolio must not only consistently produce capital growth above that of passively invested capital such as index based funds; the portfolio must also outperform top rated actively managed funds available in the marketplace. For 2019, based on the return earned, the portfolio has, once again, achieved its mandate.
$1 million invested since inception (August of 2000) has grown to exceed $32.6 million at year end 2019. Compounded over the 19+ year timeframe, that figure represents an annualized return of 20%. Investors who demonstrated sufficient patience to hold the portfolio, from inception, have been rewarded handsomely for their perseverance.
