Nathalie Legrée is a great saver.
Motivated by the FIRE movement, she wants to gain Financial Independence and Retire Early. The 33-year old teacher joins a growing number of millennials that have decided to live frugally and sock away large percentages of their incomes every year.
Nathalie already owns a couple of houses. She also has $60,000 invested in portfolio of low-cost index funds.
Currently she’s investing about $2000 a month.
But the recent market crash has tossed water on her flames. “I started to invest in a portfolio of ETFs about a year and a half ago,” she says. “But the market’s drop has me wondering if I’ve made the right decision. It has me thinking that perhaps I should invest in real estate instead.”
