How Dividend Knight started his investment journey

Some of my readers are curious about how I begin my investment journey. So, let me fill you guys in.

It started back in 2013 when the markets were volatile and bearish due to 'QE tapering tantrums'. After following some financial bloggers like Dividend Warrior, MusicWhiz, Investment Moats and AK for a long time, I decided to take the first step towards building my own dividend portfolio. Their portfolios inspire me, especially Dividend Warrior's version.

I am in my late thirties with no family commitments. So, I was able to utilise most of my salary, bonuses and savings for investment. Before I know it, a sizeable portfolio was built within 2 years.

My aim is to achieve $2k per month in dividends by the time I celebrate my 40th birthday. I hope all of you would join me on this amazing journey and hopefully be inspired too.



  1. DK,

    And I thought its putting one foot in front over the other...

    Silly me!


    1. Hi SMOL,

      Thanks for visiting my blog.

      Well, some people say would 'slow and steady wins the race'. But I feel those people probably started early and have time on their side.

      Alas, I started investing late (relatively speaking). So, I had to charged forward at full steam.

  2. Good luck on your journey to financial independence

    1. Hi James,

  4. Best of luck and perseverance in your journey! Stick with the course and it'll eventually bear fruits :)

    Probably a proverb worth bearing in mind might be "Even if you reached for the stars and failed to achieve them, you won't end up with a handful of mud either".

  5. Hi DK,

    All the best in your investment journey.
