About me & contact

My name is Ross, I currently live in Cape Town, South Africa. I am a full time investor and a part time writer.

Through this site I am seeking to inspire people to reach financial independence (FI). I believe the best way to do this is to be a business owner, a tycoon. This does not need to be the traditional idea of a tycoon, such as a rail road owner or the owner of a chain of stores. You can buy stocks in profitable enterprises , which pay dividends, and through the magic of compounding, help you become a Dividend Tycoon.

My personal goal is to build a global portfolio of primarily USA and UK stocks that provide an income of $2000 per month, which will allow me to be independent in many countries. Starting this global portfolio is important to me as I am living in an emerging market country, where despite the opportunities in stocks, which I will also write about, the future is not always certain. I will share my stock research, my ideas on how to invest successfully, the psychology of investing and my thoughts about reaching FI.

I will also update you each month on the portfolio, both the value and the income.

This journey will take many years and will be slow to start, but I hope you will join me.

I can be contacted at info@dividendtycoon.com. Any suggestions or comments are welcome.
