Stocks are essential for building assets. Otherwise, in a time of zero-percent interest rates, all you can do is watch as your money dwindles.

However, many people are also nervous about the stock market, conditioned as we are by spectacular stock market crashes such as the bursting of the dotcom bubble in 2000, or the global financial crisis in 2008. Yes, people lost money. But there are a number of precautions that you can take. These include minimizing risk through diversification, as well as asking yourself one pragmatic question: How much do I actually want to invest?

We will also be taking a very close look at whether an ETF or individual stocks are better. Of course, there is no single answer, but we can help with your personal assessment of what feels right to you.

This guide does not rely on false promises like “get rich quick” or other unrealistic promises of the kind we see every day on the internet. 

Instead, we calmly review the various subjects that you should have mastered before you start investing money in stocks.


Just like in life, the same is true for the stock market: Knowledge is power.

Some of our satisfied customers:

" I have always dabbled a little in the stock market, but not with any great success. I even recognized most of my own mistakes in the “Beginner’s Mistakes” chapter of this guide. 

I am very satisfied with the depth of detail. It’s never boring. Put together exactly right to make it really understandable.”

- Nick H.

"Listening to the news every day during the coronavirus crisis, I have been hearing that share prices are falling worldwide. I knew nothing at all about this subject, but I didn’t want to miss this opportunity. 

In this guide, I have found everything that I was urgently looking for. Now I have a stock account and have already bought my first stocks.”
