Hi, and thanks for stopping by! (Cool rhyme)

Welcome to Stealthy Wealth, a personal finance blog where you will find my thoughts on Investing, Cutting Costs, Financial Discipline and any other randomness that pops into my head as I aim for early retirement and financial independence in 2030 at the age of 45. You can view my progress towards this goal on the Tracker Page.

You can find the latest blog post below, or, if you want to be notified whenever I put up new content, just pop your email address into the text box on the right, and the internet elves will do the rest (as a nice side effect I will also send you useful spreadsheets and stuff from time to time).

Is 86c Expensive?

Who remembers these?
A while back I listed the ETF’s with the highest Total Expense Ratios (TER) in a post on my Facebook page. The most expensive one came in with a TER of 0.86%.

Someone commented on the post asking what a TER was, and so I explained the concept and used an example which equated to saying you pay around 86c per R100 you have invested every year. Someone else then commented saying that that is really not bad if we consider that to be expensive.
