Welcome to Roadmap2Retire!

Hello World!

Who I am

I work in the High Tech industry with a passion for personal finances and investing. I consider myself a DIY investor and wish to share my experiences via this blog.

OK. How about a little more context?

  • I live in Ottawa, Canada
  • I am in my early 30’s. I started saving and investing in 2007
  • I am engaged and will be getting married later this year (2013)
  • I work in the High Tech industry

Why this blog?

I have been contemplating on starting a blog for a while but my procrastinating-self has always gotten the better of me. I spend a large portion of my day reading and already maintain a huge collection of stats/notes. I decided that by making this public, others may benefit from it and in the process, I get to learn more 🙂

What’s my investment style?

I have experimented with a lot of different investment styles over the past few years. From investing in index funds, mutual funds, ETFs, stocks of blue chip companies, penny stocks, options etc. I intend to cover pros and cons of different investing styles and share some of my experiences. I also intend to share my portfolios and track my overall returns here.
