Pension fund

The Belgian government incentivizes people to have their own pension plan using a tax deduction of 30%.
I have stopped using this trading account as I will focus on my apartment and my personal portfolio. Only changes happening here will be by the market.

Alternative investments

This account is very small due to the extremely speculative nature of this type of “investment”. I have a Coinbase account for my cryptocurrency investments.

Savings accounts

Finally, I have two savings accounts.
The first one is limited to a max deposit of 750 EUR/month. This is not completely up to what I would like it to be, 6 months worth of salary so this should get more cash asap. The second regular savings account contains my rental deposit.

Real Estate portfolio

This table contains an overview of the money invested in real estate. For the moment this is just one apartment. I hope to increase this in the future to multiple.

The value detailed below is all the cash put into the apartment. It’s the principle but not the interest or other costs. The apartment value (or at least what I paid for it) is 332,500 EUR.
