I put £10 in the football index in April 2016, how did I do?



  • My first sizeable deposit in the football index was early 2019, however, I remember hearing about the product sometime ago and decided to test the waters with a small amount. I initially deposited £10 in April 2016 but didn't follow it up with any further investment as I couldn't see the appeal of the index at the time and things seemed very basic back then. (Big mistake of course!)

    So what world superstar did I buy in April 2016? Messi? Ronaldo? Ibrahimovic? Not a chance! there was only one player whom I knew would go onto be king of the index and turn my £10 into £100!

    And 36 months later here's what I sold him for.

    So for anyone wishing they had invested years ago to have accumulated thier riches this might make you feel better! 😜

    *Pictures the wrong way around.



  • Haha, he must of been one of the handful of duds you could have chosen.



  • Unfortunately his career has fallen off a cliff with all his injuries.

    Remember when Liverpool bought him for £35m!



  • 69p profit on £9.60 (after commission) - a 7% return in three years.

    It’s official - Andy Carroll is better than an ISA.

    😀



  • Had you stuck that on Neymar, heaven knows how much that would be now (albeit, it would have expired I think?)



  • I wonder what you would have been able to sell for at one point in his career. Probably made a decent amount



  • @ocs123 I actually looked at his April 2016 match history this morning, might have been the reason why I bought him at the time. Don't remember his hatrick against Arsenal but he was red hot for a certain period.
