Hi, I’m Matti and I’m an investor.
I have been active in investing since 2006 or 2007 when I changed health insurance company with the help of my mum. The insurance person said that I should start investing in funds in order to accumulate wealth for the future. To a young student, the thought seemed far-fetched because as a 16-year-old I had better plans for the money. Somehow, I still started investing. We all know what happened in 2008, but I continued investing through the crisis every month, €50 at a time. When the crisis was over, I saw some green colour in my web bank portfolio, and I was hooked.

Hi, I’m Endrik and I’m an investor.
During the last two weeks, I have lost about 35% of the value of my stock portfolio. Around 30% has also vanished from my startup investments.

Germany is the world’s
third-largest exporter, the Eurozone’s largest economy and currently has one of
the lowest unemployment rates in the world. Unfortunately, due to tensions in
international trade and structural changes in the economy, the growth pace of
the economy is below 1% and this is not expected to change in the coming years.
Unemployment has remained at low levels throughout the last years (3,4% in
2019). In light of the shortage of skills in the labour force and programmes to
support flexible working hours, worsening conditions in the labour market are
Even though weak world
trade growth has contributed to further reduction of industrial production and
a slowdown in the German economy, the expansionary monetary and fiscal policy will
continue to support the growth. At the same time, the weaker external demands
are supported by domestic forces. Private consumption is supported by the
growth of household disposable income due to fiscal policy measures and growth
in wages. Therefore, despite the slowdown in the economy, German Consumer
confidence remained high throughout 2019. The construction sector has remained
robust and business confidence in the sector is strong. The slowing housing
investment in the second quarter of 2019 was largely temporary and mild weather
conditions enabled more construction during the winter months and real estate
development companies are well stocked with upcoming projects.
