We <3 Dividend!

Yay, dividend was paid out today! I really love the fact that our Vanguard FTSE All World stocks pay out a quarterly dividend. You can watch this compound interest theory doing it’s thing, yeah baby!

Next month it’s “my month” to invest the bigger monthly sum the hubby and myself agreed upon.

I hope your Christmas was merry and bright and I wish you a wonderful and prosperous new year.

Lots of love,

Mrs EconoWiser

P.s. I am looking forward to my maternity leave early February. Hopefully I’ll find the energy to blog a lot more…and clear out the house….and set up this new business thingy I have been thinking about…oh….right….and having this second (and final!!!) baby! 😉

    Many happy returns, and hurray for dividends! Did you notice the dividend paid out was fractionally lower than originally announced? Maybe this has to do with the euro/dollar exchange rate? I’m not sure but I’m very curious what causes this.

      Yeah, I noticed that a quarter ago as well. I phoned BinckBank and they said it probably (but they weren’t sure!!!???) had something to doe with the exchange rate….grmbl.

    Jeeeej 😀 Succes met de laatste werkloodjes… Zou leuk zijn om weer wat meer van je te lezen, maar ik snap het wel dat je daar nu even de energie niet voor kan vinden!!

      Thanks! Er is de afgelopen tijd zoveel gebeurt…ik kan de balletjes net in de lucht houden en moet ervoor waken dat ik niet omdonder. Dus grenzen getrokken enzo. Ik zie uit naar het verlof want mijn lijf is gewoon niet zo goed in zwanger zijn…

        Met 2 zwangerschappen in zo’n korte periode vraag je ook wel heel veel van je lijf. Pas goed op jezelf.

        Yep, het is echt afzien. Ik kan nog net een blokje om lopen, maar dat is het dan ook. De bekken en rug willen niet meer. Gelukkig krijg ik veel hulp en doe ik meestal (maar het kan beter!) rustig aan…

    Hey Ew! Happy Newyear!!!
    I just finish reading all your posts.. I devoured them in less than 2 days (while I should had been studying for my exams) :p I’m still a student in Belgium and started really learning about investing 2 months ago or so. I just wanted to thank You and your uncle J for all your help. I also opened a account with meesman and will start with deposits of 100 € each month, after graduating would also like to start with Vanguard. I will still ofcourse keep an eye on you guys.. Cheers!

      Wootwootwoot! Welcome EVZ! Congrats on opening an account with Meesman! Which fund(s) did you choose? And YAY for starting with investing that early in life. You’re going to be well on your way to FI in your thirties. Keep us posted!

        Thank you thank you. I’m still in the proces of opening the account, because I don’t live in the Nederlands and don’t have a social security number there, I had to send my request by post (like the ones with stamps) sooo… that’s a first. For my funds, I’m going have to agree with the husband, 80% world and 20 emerging. It’s aggressive but I’m not to old (I think) and will be saving 5% cash aside for when the stocks are in discount. What do you think?
