    Hi Guys,

    Been doing a lot of research around ETFs and formulating a bit of a simple plan to make the most of an investment loan = to my initial investment and increased by the value of the investment annually, investment loan is at a 7% interest rate.

    Based on my calcs it looks like a fairly solid plan to move from 100k to 2mil + over a 20 year period as long as the chosen ETFs perform at least at a 10% return rate, i understand there will be good and bad years depending on what the market does.

    Am i missing something with this plan or is fairly sound?

    You can trade ETF’s just like any other instrument
    As such you can backtest your strategy (maintaining a % return )
    So all I see missing is a plan of how your going to achieve it that
    Has been backtested and returns the metrics you need to meet
    Your end goal.
    From there you’ll have a blue print of what YOU will put in place
    To achieve it

    On the flip side you may save 20 years by finding out that you
    Planned trading method is highly likely to fail.
    Compounding is a powerful tool but first you need to profit!

    It’s a long journey but better learn how to invest YOUR capital than leave
    It to someone else to lose,underperform or erode with fees and a smile
    While feeding you rhetoric about market factors!!!!

    While it’s a no from me you have seen the power of compounding
    As a strategy it has a long way to go to implementation.

    In the early years (before returns pass personal income lol) I'm thinking if you had the portfolio in a non working spouse/partners name then it would be more tax effective. Otherwise all earnings will be taxed at your marginal rate. Also would you not pay down the 100k loan asap?

    The plan would be to leverage the borrowed funds to increase the investment value, the earnings above the interest on the loan then compounds over time contributing to the long term growth of the account.
