On a percentage basis how much did your net worth increase or decrease by in 2017 ? Yours truly got a 10.7% bump in the right direction. What say you ?

Doesn't matter. Short term market movements are noise. You need a long term strategy.

I'm still working, but my wife is retired and living off pension.
Net worth increased 13.3% in 2017 - pretty incredible.

Net worth (excluding home and personal property) is up 11.9% in 2017, and 22.8% since retiring January 2016. I know this won't last forever, but it has been a great start.

Just doing my year end numbers too. Up a shade over 12%, in retirement (no wage income coming in to offset spending), and despite funding a DAF at the end of the year.

Excluding property, including debt and investments, we have a 14.5% increase.

Big relief for the first full year of retirement!

NW is +14.05% in 2017. Our expectation for 2018 is much lower - in the single digit area.

Excluding home value (which did go up but I do not count on it for the long term), we were up 12.93%. Best yearly increase for us since the end of 2012.

18.8%, but part of that was final year of savings from having earned income.
