¬†Progress of JIC Portfolio at 31st March 2021
On 31st March 2021, the “JIC Portfolio” was up 336.4% since inception in January 2012, giving an annualised return of +17.3%, comparing favourably with the return of +87.3%, (+7.0% annualised) of the FTSE All-Share (Total Return) Index. The FTSE All-World (GBP) Total Return Index was up 220.8%, (+13.4% annualised).
*I do not manage my portfolio with particular reference to the weightings of companies in the FTSE All-Share (TR) Index or the FTSE All-World (GBP) Total Return Index. ¬†I do, however, consider them useful comparators, given that the first is the index most widely used to measure the performance of the UK equity market and the second, gives a good indication of how world equity markets are doing. After all, if I can’t beat them, I should put my money into an FTSE All-Share Index or FTSE All-World tracker and spend my time doing something else!¬†
“Past experience does not necessarily give a guide for the future.” Since¬†I started the Portfolio in 2012, the JIC Portfolio has done well. That is no¬†guarantee that it will do well in the future. ¬†Clearly, I will be doing my utmost to ensure it does as this is my money and my future financial security.¬†
