After two and a half years on the index I thought I was going to exit a few months ago when the index went a bit flat and then the div increase came along.
Although I’ve only had a small increase since then I am more than content to keep my money in for a lot longer now. My reason is that the powers at FI HQ want to keep the platform growing. Div increase, huge marketing campaign, Nasdaq. Therefore I can only see an upwards trend from here.
My new exit plan has changed to 2 years from now when I have hopefully made enough for a very substantial house deposit. So far I’ve turned £2k into £12,500 and now with a larger portfolio the gains are becoming greater.
