Total portfolio worth (excl. mortgage)

The last quarter of 2019 continued where Q3 stopped, on a high note. The amazing experiences continued and the market kept performing stellar and kept making new highs.

It ended with an all-time high for my personal portfolio. An amazing performance of my personal portfolio almost always means a top-notch performance of my other managed portfolio as well. This quarter was no different as you will see.

Mortgage secured

Where in the third quarter I still had to find and sign the papers of a mortgage, in Q4 I actually secured one. I was able to get the 280,000 EUR mortgage at a rate of 1.47% with a total yearly cost Annual Percentage Rate (APR) of 1.825%.

As promised, as of now I will have a separate section for my real estate.

I would like your opinion on how I should handle this big change in net worth.

How should I go about showing the mortgage and the inheritance?

Declining Savings Rate

This last quarter also made clear that living on my own created a massive decline in my Savings Rate. I see it as a challenge to get as close as possible to my old SR before I moved out of my parents’ house.

Luckily, even with a declining SR and a focus on real estate, my net worth grew 8.71% this quarter.
This includes the money I set aside myself for my apartment but not the inheritance or the value of the apartment.

Always a big moment, receiving the keys to your own place. Hopefully that is not too far away for me.

USD stocks

The below table contains my stocks denominated in USD. Since the currency rate fluctuates daily, it impacts the total portfolio wealth counter. To keep it simple I will use the rate applicable at the time of writing every quarter (give or take a day). You can find the rate used at the top of this page.

All my stocks, so also my dollar ones, made great profits!
Coming from -11,27% I made a huge increase 8.69%. In other words I gained 11.27 + 8.69 = 19.96%.
