In today’s episode, we will speak to my friend The Poor Swiss.
The Poor Swiss is a Swiss (duh!) blogger writing about his pursuit of Financial Independence. One of the ways he tries to achieve this is through investing in the stock markets.

We will discuss if this approach makes sense for us here in Europe. We also discuss how and where to look for ETF’s and share reviews on European online brokers (DeGiro and Interactive brokers).

Adine is from The Netherlands and we met last September at Fincon. Although we met at a Money/Finance conference, one of her favourite topics is Money Mindset.

You can write or read about the best financial tips, the next best stock with the highest potential growth, the best area to own a rental property and so on.
