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).

Where's Your Money?

Playing chicken with your investments. 
Diversification is a term that the cool kids investment professionals like to throw around a lot, and for good reason – as Nobel Prize winner Harry Markowitz put it:

Diversification is the only free lunch in investing.

Okay, so diversification is important, but what does it mean?

In simple terms, diversification means not putting all your eggs in one basket. But we should probably take this a step further and also avoid putting all our baskets under one roof.
