Long time reader of this great forum and first time poster.
Like many since discovering the topic of FIRE I’ve read plenty, and found out about mistakes I’ve made in the past (e.g. Pilar 3A life insurance!) and learnt many humbling lessons from them.
I’ve also learnt about the importance of developing a ‘side hustle’ to support future wealth building, and for things such as personal development in order to keep learning new things.
With that in mind, I decided to create an investing blog to share my knowledge. It covers some of the basics, reviews roboadvisor platforms in Switzerland, and other useful guides for people new to investing.
For those that are interested, you can visit it here.
A short note regarding affiliates. I know it’s a touchy topic with trusting blogs with a conflict of interest.
While the blog uses some affiliate links to cover costs, I’m only interested in producing genuine content which adds value to users. That’s first and foremost. If a platform or service I’ve used doesn’t have an affiliate program, I’ll still review it – like I’ve done with VIAC.
The platform reviews (e.g. Selma Finance, TrueWealth etc) can take upwards of 20hrs to create, regardless of a kickback from the provider.
In fact, the most traffic goes to pages with no affililate links whatsover, such as the monster guides and investing basics.
I’m in this for the long term, to build something which will add value to users – even if that means foregoing some short term profits.
And if the platform or service sucks, I’ll make that clear too.
I’m still in the early stages of building up the blog and there is plenty more to come, but I’d welcome any feedback and comments you have.
Thanks for reading!
