Month 2: ~1% down, £300 invested

This month I’ve opened up my 100 EM Clean fund, adding both iShares Global Clean Energy and iShares Global Clean Water to my portfolio.

As this is month #2, I’ve invested a total of £300, and am currently seeing a return of -£3.43, or about -1%. To see my portfolio updated daily, see my portfolio page.

About my investments:

Every month I use Freetrade to invest £100 into each of several buckets of investments. If you’re a new customer and are referred to them (you can join here), you’ll also get a free, random share in a company or other fund, worth between £3 and £200.
