Summary: Maybe that big Dow Jones run has already evened out, or maybe it didn't affect us much. Either way, our gains in all our retirement accounts were modest this month. However, a huge month for debt repayment made for a big increase in net worth!

I will update my "Individual Net Worth" page shortly so you can see how it breaks out per person.

Notes on the numbers above: House value estimates are approximate. I don't have a way to check NT's UK pensions or flat value, so their values stay static for the purpose of this update (unless I happen to get some info by chance). UK asset values and debt amounts are calculated figuring $1.60 for every British pound.

    Congrats! Going up in net worth is the right way!

    Net worth increasing is terrific. Managing allocation and making decisions for seven different investment accounts is a huge task. We can no longer have a 'buy and hold' mentality - it's too risky. Are you using Vanguard or similar low cost funds?

  3. ceejay74 Says:

    They are all in target date funds except that puny traditional IRA, which is just in cash. So they readjust periodically on their own. Five are aggressive and one is moderate. The three employer-run ones that we use for the matching and pretax benefit, we have no control over the managers of the funds: Paychex, Merrill and Prudential. For the three Roths we use Vanguard.
