So apparently, I was so busy last month that I missed the portfolio update for the first time ever. A lot has been happening in the markets, mostly bad stuff. Even as I’m writing this, the second-largest crypto exchange in the world (FTX) seems to have collapsed.
Capital Growth Portfolio
We saw a 1.73% increase in portfolio value in October.
Portfolio value: €6313.73
Retirement Fund Portfolio
Compared to October, we are up with a mere 0.54%, but at least it’s some recovery from an abysmal last month!
Portfolio value: €2566.69
Index Fund & Stock Portfolio
I’ve bought two different stocks in the past two months, META and T, I’ve expanded my AT&T position to gain more dividends. Meta Platforms Inc was one of the stocks I always wanted to add, but felt was too expensive at the time, I’m happy buying it around these prices though.
- 5 Meta Platforms Inc (META) at $94,01
- 25 AT&T Inc (T) at $15,97
I’m a bit heavy on stocks, so I’m trying to buy some ETFs or add cash. However, I feel sitting on cash is a waste with the markets this low.
Portfolio value: €8224.63
Passive income: €3.74
Real Growth/Decline: €717.61
Ideal allocation (December 2021):
- Stocks: 75%
- ETFs & Cash: 25%
If you want to start investing as well, the platform I’m investing on is DeGiro, but you can also invest on other platforms like eToro.
No deposits, portfolio up 2.24%
Portfolio value: €250.2
P2P Lending Portfolio
Steady growth as always, 0.66% this month. The passive income is always around €5.
Portfolio value: €807.01
Passive income: €5.21

This month, I started investing in trees. I was looking for a way to reduce my carbon footprint while increasing my portfolio value. In the first couple of years, there is no ROI because the tree needs to grow. The project’s duration is 20 years, with an average ROI of 7.8%. This seems pretty good. I’ve started with one tree per month at €22.50. I might scale if I feel good about the platform or if new projects are launched.
Portfolio value: €22.50
October was a green month for the portfolio, with 18.71% growth. I rebought some ETH and BTC in the last 2 months but haven’t invested any new money. I will probably start doing so because the price will probably tank more in the coming weeks.
The rest of the assets are still growing slowly because of the interest. Swissborg is giving me a 4.5% yield on my bitcoin and 7.75% on my USDC.
I also want to remind everyone, especially now that crypto is quickly appreciating in value, how important it is to keep the bulk of your crypto off the exchanges you are trading on. I keep mine on a Ledger.
Portfolio value: €3183.72
Bitcoin value: 0.057397023
Ethereum value: 0.95757987

Ideas for December
In the coming months, it is time to add some to the cash position and invest a little more in crypto if the crypto portfolio doesn’t turn around. This will be needed to keep the 20% allocation.
- Nothing new planned
