This is launch day for an entirely new portfolio, the Copernicus. This is a simple portfolio where there is only one investment, VTI. The idea behind this portfolio is to feed it with new dollars each month and to never sell.
I’ve wanted to run such a portfolio for a long time and I am finally getting to it. In hind sight, if I had invested only in VFINX when it first launched and never done anything else, I would be much further ahead. However, there are a lot of other “what ifs” so I am now doing something about it. This provides ITA readers with yet another model to choose, ignore, or follow with interest.
