5i Recent Questions

Q: I recently asked: "f had $500,000 invested in the Income Portfolio balanced exactly as it was in 2017, how much money would I have earned in 2017?"

Your answer was "The income portfolio returned 9.28% in 2017; so $500,000 at the start of the year would have earned $46,400. Note our portfolio returns do not include commission, so your actual return would be slightly less than this depending on your commission charges to buy/sell.'

y follow up question- Does that figure of $46,400 include the dividend pay out, or just the appreciation of the portfolio?
