Why I’m Building A Single Stock Portfolio

We’re used to finding an off-the-shelf fund or ETF for almost any type of investment. But what if you want to invest in a way that isn’t available in fund form? For example, in the UK, one of my pet peeves is that we don’t have a passive small cap value fund.

In this video, I’m going to show you how I’m going to construct my own portfolio out of single stocks to achieve a small cap value fund. This is part of my “Fun” portfolio, and it’s an experiment to see whether this will work in practice and whether I can actually beat the market. I will also consider some of the pitfalls in building your own single-stock portfolio and some ways to help you overcome them.
