To find a perfect portfolio has always been a dream of every investor. For an inexperienced investor, this task seems almost impossible. Yet finding that perfect "mix" of financial instruments with just the right weight percentages is such a crucial step in determining one's financial future. Which financial instruments to choose? What percentages of them should be used? What kind of portfolio behavior will those decisions bring? Those are the questions that are so hard for inexperienced investors to answer. That is why they mostly turn to financial advisors for help. In majority of cases however, those advisors will take advantage of them by steering them towards mutual funds and other financial instruments that benefit only financial advisors themselves, and not the investors.

For this reason I have developed two different "palettes" of portfolios - EU portfolios for EU citizens, and US portfolios for everyone else. To find out more, click one of the buttons below:
