What will we do?

We will present and discuss our personal experience with investment in stocks and ETFs as well as explain the fundamental underlying concepts.

Afterwards if you want you can set up something for yourself e.g. an ETF savings plan and we will give you some guidance to the best of our knowledge and ability.

IMPORTANT: We will not and cannot give investment advice and cannot accept responsibility for your potential future losses. Investing always entails risks. If we present a particular provider or platform it is because we have some personal experience using it, that’s it. To avoid conflicts of interest we will NOT use affiliate links, recommendation bonuses or similar. None of us has any formal training in banking, finances or economics. We are not financial advisors!


You are worried you have nothing to contribute? No worries! Everyone is welcome!

There always is a mix of German and English speakers and we configure the discussion rounds so that everyone feels comfortable participating. The primary language is English.

This meetup will be hosted by Nawid.

There will be snacks and drinks.

We will go and get dinner after the meetup. Anyone who has time is welcome to join.
