New asset in my portfolio: P2P lending

I have had a small portion of money in a P2P platform, Mintos, for almost a 1½ now. This was to test and learn the system. Now I am finally ready to spread my wings and fly.

I have added a total of DKK 40.000 / 6153 $ to Mintos in the beginning of January

Mintos is the best P2P platform in Europe, and my average interest on my small “test” portfolio was 10,7 %! That is a great yield.

Another benefit at Mintos is the option to auto-invest and auto-reinvest. That is a great feature and really makes this income passive!

Here is my auto-invest strategy:

I only invest in loan originators with a buyback-guarantee. There is still a lot of risk involved in P2P lending, and I will never invest money, that I couldn’t afford to loose.

If you’re interested in Mintos, you can use this link and get and additional 1% for the first couple of months: My affiliate link to Mintos

This also means, I will start to add my gains from Mintos to my monthly updates.

My allocation of stocks explained

Everybody needs a strategy to maintain a path. I don’t claim to have the perfect stock strategy or portfolio allocation. I just need a strategy to prevent myself of buying stocks in east and west.

The strategy gives me room to play in the categories Stock Picks and Stamps.

Here is my overall strategy for stock allocation:

The name of my portfolio is ‘The Dream Account’

Dividends are what dreams are made of. At least for me.

Two years ago, when I started to get back into the investing game, I had to convince my wife to join me on this journey.

From earlier experience I knew, that my only chance of beating the stock market was to use the ultimate weapon against highs and lows of the market: Patience. And that is how I invented ‘The Dream Account’ and it is exactly what you think it would be…. what a terrible cliffhanger.. Please read this post anyway 🙂
