Sector Diversification

In building my portfolio I aim for diversification – both in number of companies as well as in sectors. The chart below shows the current sector diversification of my portfolio.

The table below shows the portfolio value over time. The red line marks the share of reinvested dividends as part of the total portfolio value. Taking the analogy of ‘The Snowball’ – the dividends should eventually make up for the majority of the portfolio value.
