August 2021: Rise of the Licenses

This month there is good news for investors. The largest P2P platform in Europe has obtained the licenses for investment firm and electronic money institute. You can read more about this further on. More platforms are in the process of acquiring licenses, and that is only to be welcomed. Due to the strict rules, the …

July 2021: relaxed summer times

The summer holidays are always a quiet period, and there is little general news. There is some interesting news about the individual platforms though, and especially the new alternative to Bondora Go&Grow is interesting (a hint: it concerns Crowdestor Flex). These types of products are particularly interesting for investors, because you can get a very …

June 2021: crowdlending is slowly picking up

The return of my crowdlending investments was dealt a lot of blows last year by, among others, Envestio and Kuetzal. Since that time, my crowdlending return has slowly increased again and is now at 4%. Not comparable with the 12% it was before, but fortunately it is still positive. It is often said that loans …

May 2021: East vs West, a surprising comparison

Investing is all about choices. I wanted to post my update again on the first or second of the month, but the weather was finally summery and the terraces beckoned. Investing is also about choosing the platforms where you invest and the types of investments. If you know how to choose the platforms well you …

April 2021: stock market: all-time-high, next crash eminent?

The stock market is doing really well, last year’s crash has been fully compensated. In fact, things have never gone better, while the crisis is still underway and long-term consequences are not yet known. So it could well be that a significant correction will take place again. Later you can read how I intend to …

March 2021: Spring at the stock market

Finally, spring has arrived! Hopefully it will now be the last mile, and it will not be long before the terraces can be opened. Spring has also arrived on the stock market, the AEX has risen by 6.5% in a month to over 700 points. This month I have withdrawn a lot of money from …

February 2021: new strategy on the stock market

This month my investments on the stock exchange are yielding more than my crowdlending investments again. But surprisingly, crowdfunding takes second place this month. Brickowner shows that equity crowdfunding could also generate good returns, although it depends of course on luck and the right choices. This month I will start with a new strategy on …

January 2021: stocks biggest driver in 2021 too

Various platforms indicate that they are looking forward to the implementation of the new European crowdfunding legislation, that they are making preparations to comply with it, but are also waiting for the national regulators to implement it. But I’m sure investors are even more eager for this. We still have to wait, however, because the …

December 2020: happy new year!

What a turbulent year 2020 was, I’ve rarely seen a year with so many ups and downs. It started dramatically with the fall of Envestio and Kuetzal. Envestio and Kuetzal were a wakeup call to me and other investors, P2P can give good results but you have to become and remain more critical. I think …

November 2020: end of crisis near? Stock markets seem to think so

As you can see below, the stock platforms have more than compensated for the decline in recent months. The increasingly positive reports about the impending vaccines give everyone hope that the crisis is almost over and that everything can get back to normal. Of course I hope so too, but I expect it will take …
