what you are doing might only fit in a good solid vanilla folder, but it is certain to do well and keep safe.

A good friend's wife from 1980 till now simply put her money into savings accounts and sat on the money. When the dust cleared after the tech meltdown in 2000, my friend used to kid that all his clients <auto shop owner> and many of his friends now had less money than his wife.

It is worth keeping in mind that those who ride high into the wind often fall to earth later.
