EstateGuru employee investment journey – Part 4: Kadri Akk

Hello! My name is Kadri and I am an investor.

That statement makes me feel pretty proud, but still feels a little unfamiliar to me.

My investment journey began in 2017 when my friend and I bought cryptocurrencies for a few hundred euros just for fun.

EstateGuru employee investment journey – Part 3: Tadas Mineikis

Hi, I am Tadas and I am an investor

EstateGuru employee investment journey – Part 1: Endrik Eller

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. Legendary investor Warren Buffet said his main investment rule was: “Don’t lose capital”. According to that, I have failed heavily. Although I am a big fan of Mr Buffet, I don’t see the current situation too dramatically.
