How To Manage Your Private Investments

One way to manage your private investments is by using software applications. There are many different software applications that you can use to manage your private investments, such as SPV administration services, and each one comes with its own set of features. Some of the most popular software applications include Personal Capital, Quicken, and Mint.com.

Personal Capital

Personal Capital is a software application that you can manage all your private investments from one location. It also comes with features that allow you to see how much money you have spent on things like groceries or clothes. You can quickly and easily check up on your spending habits without having to go through individual bank accounts. It’s easy to sign up for Personal Capital, but you have to link it to your bank accounts. Once all of your accounts are linked, you can see how much money you’ve spent on groceries or clothes just by clicking through different categories.

Another thing that makes Personal Capital an excellent tool for managing your private investments is that it uses technology to help you make better investment decisions. The software application has a built-in financial advisor that will help you make more informed investment choices.


Quicken is another popular software application that you can use to manage your private investments. Quicken comes with many of the same features as Personal Capital, but it also offers unique features that make it stand out. One of the best features is the investment alerts. With investment alerts, users can set up notifications for particular investments, so they know when a change has been made. Quicken also offers a built-in retirement planner that will help you create a custom plan to get you on track to reach your retirement goals. The software application also connects directly with over 14,000 banks, so you can easily track your finances.


Mint.com is a software application that you can use to manage all of your financial accounts in one place. Mint.com comes with many different features, but the most popular one is the budgeting feature. With the budgeting feature, users can create a custom budget and track their spending. The software application also comes with a debt reduction feature that will help you pay off your debts faster. Mint.com is free to use, and it connects directly with your bank accounts and credit cards so you can get a complete picture of your finances.

Financial Advisor

Another way to manage your private investments is by using a financial advisor. Financial advisors can help you better manage your private investments by providing investment advice. A financial advisor will work with you to set up a portfolio that is best suited for your current financial situation. You can either go with an in-person financial advisor, or you can choose to work with one online. An online financial advisor can be more convenient because you don’t have to meet in person, and you can usually get started for free.

Brokerage Account

The final way to manage your private investments is by using a brokerage account. A brokerage account is an account that you open with a financial institution that allows you to buy and sell stocks, bonds, and other types of investments. When you open a brokerage account, you can choose to use an online broker, or you can go with a full-service broker.

Full-service brokers are financial experts that will monitor your investments and make changes as necessary, but they generally charge higher fees than online brokers do for the same services. Online brokers offer many of the same features as full-service brokers because they allow you to buy and sell investments online, but they don’t offer as much personalization or hand-holding.

No matter how you choose to manage your private investments, it’s important to make sure that you have a plan in place. Having a plan will help you stay organized and make better investment choices. Failing to plan is planning to fail.

Recent Stock Purchase October 2022

As you know by now I make a stock purchase every single month no matter what is going on in the world and despite the doom and gloom headlines. Perhaps I am naive or more of an optimist that we will get through these dark financial times somehow. Either way, I have been busy buying up some stock this month and was happy to put some fresh and recycled capital to work to try and recoup some of my lost dividend income courtesy of the numerous cuts bestowed upon my portfolio in recent years.

October 2022 Stock Considerations

A new trading month is about the begin and boy do we have a seemingly endless crop of stocks that are becoming fair valued to undervalued.

Earnings and Cash Flows: A Primer on Free Cash Flow

It is never pleasant to be in the midst of a market correction, but a market correction does operate as a cleanser for excesses that enter into even the most disciplined investors' playbooks in the good times. This correction has been no exception, as the threat of losing investment capital has focused the minds of investors, and led many to reexamine practices adopted during the last decade. In particular, there has been more talk of earnings than of revenue or user growth this year, and the notion of cashflows driving value seems to be back in vogue.

Deleveraging to Build Back Better

Hey everyone This is a post that is a long time running and one that I actually didn’t really want to sit down and write.

This will definitely destroy our passive income at the moment but I feel like its a good move being debt free once again.
