Please don’t fall off your chair (or whatever you are sitting on), because Cheesy Finance is going Dutch! I know quite a few people that are not that great at English. For them this blog is a bridge too far when it comes to reading about personal finance and FIRE. It was time to change that, it is time for a Dutch Corner on this blog!
The Dutch Corner
Don’t worry, I will just keep blogging in English. Primarily because it’s easier to write in English for me than in Dutch. Heck, I make fewer errors in English than in Dutch (and I’m not talking about typo’s that slip through). I should be ashamed, I know! But combine an education primarily in English, international career and pretty much all correspondence going in English. I simply got better at one than at the other.
But I have, and will continue, to add Dutch written content to my Dutch corner of this little personal finance and FIRE blog. So far I have added a few posts (technically, they are pages) about what FIRE is, what our definition is of FIRE and how much money you need. Now, this one is not as detailed as some of our tax related posts, but it does give you a bit of guidance for the Netherlands.
Topics of Interest
There are many topics of interest to me, and hopefully also to you my Dutch audience. Therefore I’ve also written some articles about the following:
- Differences between indexfunds and ETF’s
- Investing in Real Estate en the associated taxation options
- What is Private Equity and how you might be able to invest into it.
In the coming months I’ll keep adding some content to this section. If you have topics that you would like to see added, or if you would like to see certain English post translated, please drop me a comment!
What, you wrote an E-book?
Yup, I could not stay behind on the whole “if you are a famous blogger, you need to write an E-book” trend! Just kidding 🙂 But I did try my best and wrote a small (free) Dutch E-book regarding the basics of FIRE. I also added in some basics about various investment options (including explanation of the risks, benefits and drawbacks). If you are interested, visit the Dutch Corner! Let me know what you think of it.
Now that we are talking about (the) Dutch. I almost forgot, happy Kings Day!! Have fun today, but stay safe (and at least 1,5m away from everyone else).
