My Story

Bad in school (only played soccer when I was young). Better in apprenticeship (Electronics). Pretty good in University (engineering). Started career as consultant, then found my big passion in finance and investing which eventually lead me to joining Fool.de.

How I Invest

I like to place bigger bets on fewer companies that I understand well.
