From a very young age, Steven learned the value of money and saving. He started saving money when he was only five, washing his father’s car and started to invest in Dutch shares when he was fourteen.
Following university in Amsterdam, Steven pursued a career in merchant banking in The Netherlands. Since 1989, he has been living and working in London.
Steven left the City in 1998 and since then, has been involved both as a founder as well as an early stage investor with a number of online and mobile telecoms ventures, including Ukonlineinvesting.com – a now defunct website which was aimed at longer term investors interested in making better informed investment decisions.
In 2009, Steven started Early-Retirement-Investor.com, a website aimed at professionals and expats wanting to retire earlier and richer. In 2010, Steven launched Dividend Income Investor, to demonstrate the benefits of dividend income investing based on his own unique investment research approach, buying shares at historically undervalued levels.
