Founder of Dividend Mantra. Passionate investor and writer. Coach. Best-selling author. Interested in finance, fitness, and travel. Focus on high-quality dividend growth stocks with excellent fundamentals and competitive advantages trading at attractive valuations. Aiming to become financially independent by 40 years old.
I am a part time investor in my early 30´s who has DGI as my main investing philosophy.
I plan to buy quality companies and hold them possibly forever to avoid tax. (capital gain taxes are ridiculusly high here in Denmark)
Ex-pat living and working in the Asia-Pacific region since 1999. I have travelled from Saipan to the Maldives and most countries in between which may have contributed to giving me a different perspective compared to some.
10-15 years from harvesting phase, but have the added complexity of a single-income household with a wonderful young family (pre-school). I have an aggressive savings plan and selectively plow savings and dividends into “best value” stocks roughly each month. Mainly a DGI investor, but have a few growth stocks and a very small speculative portion.
