In a mere five years, you’re going to have to replace half of that portfolio in an environment in which Bernanke has promised to keep interest-rates low for most of it. That’s going to be a daunting task.

I don’t think this will be a problem... Actually it’s 6 years which translates into something over 8%/year or 3 months of bond purchases at my current rate. But now I’m growing the portfolio at an annual rate of about 33%. So I can just continue my normal rate of buying and my asset growth will decline somewhat, but that’s probably what I would want with a more mature portfolio.

But replacing my 5 year CD’s that mature in 2015 is a different matter. Now that will be a real problem!
