Child benefit!

Imagine my surprise when I saw that I had additional 2600 Euro at my account!!! The reason is that I and my partner where living in two different EU countries for a while. The EU law says that in that case the child has right to the higher child benefit of the both countries. One…

Samhällsbyggnads i Norden Pref

I like the stability of preferred stocks so I try now to build up a portfolio where part of the dividends are coming from pref stocks. I read about a company called “Samhällsbyggnads i Norden Pref” (SBB Pref). They are keeping social properties meaning they rent out to schools, police and so on. The redeem…

Fuck you money

It is amazing how few people are interested in economy. Especially women! There are a couple of cases I met where I really wonder how they think. My mom, for example, didn’t know how to pay bills. I had a crisis when she said that. Such a strong powerful woman having no idea of something…

My (bad) H&M strategy failure…

June dividends

Today in one day we meet more people than humans did in their life time previously. Having this vast info input in…

This is perfect for people dependent…

Money machine(s)

One of my goals is to get financial freedom. My own personal money machine should be the solution for that. I have read a lot of blogs where many people see the money machine as a portfolio of stocks. Diversified yes, but still their machine is only containing stocks. I am unfortunately a “financial chicken”…
