As a person looking to become financially independent and fire my boss, I’m always investing my money. As soon as it enters my bank account, I assign every euro a job, and a lot of it goes to my investments. This is my investment strategy to become financially independent in Europe.
My Basic Investment Principles
My investment strategy is based on a few basic principles that I also tried to cover in The Introduction To Investing. You can read all of the details over there. Just make sure to pour yourself a nice cup of tea before you start reading ;-).
In short, my portfolio consists of stocks (I temporarily removed bonds) and cash (to save up for an investment in real estate). I do so through low cost index tracking ETFs and mainly follow a buy-and-hold investment strategy.
