About me

Hello and welcome to InvestAdvice.net!

My name is Lieuwe Jan and I am the writer for this blog. In my spare time I like to invest and write articles. This blog is a collection of advice, tips and my opinions that should make your investment adventure a little easier. Every week I will try to post a new article, but sometimes the wait can be a little longer…

Did you know that:

  • my first stock was Brunel, which I bought on October 20, 2014?
  • I needed to read 3 books before I dared to take that first step on the stock exchange?
  • I suffered my biggest loss (-45%) on Volkswagen stock?
  • BESI is by far my best performing stock?
  • I wrote a book about investing (in Dutch)?
  • this blog now has its 3rd name?
  • I don’t want more than 12 stocks in my portfolio?
