Our Portfolio

Unilever

 

Unilever is one of our ‘oldest’ companies. It has been in our portfolio for more than four years. In this post we would like to show you what our other investments are, and how much we have invested in them compared to our total portfolio value.


Equity

ETF’s (equity)

Bonds

  • Rabobank                                                  7%

Cash

  • Euro                                                           11%

As some of you might have noticed we have decided to take a small position in Arcadis NV after Douwe Epema proposed this during our Monday meeting.

It will be interesting for us to look at our asset allocation as currently 82% of our portfolio is invested in equity. Should we invest more in other assets such as bonds, gold or even Bitcoin? It will be food for discussion during our upcoming meetings.

Are you a student at Utrecht School of Economics and do you think you can add to this discussion? Send us an e-mail and we will invite you to one of our meetings!

Meeting 24th October

We had a really interesting meeting yesterday. We started with a small lecture from our senior investor, Wouter Adolfsen, and a financial update from our treasurer, Bertram van der Aa.

After that Navid Meyer gave us a presentation on our recent purchase Facebook. Navid managed to take away some of the concerns members had about Facebook. We will be actively following developments related to our new purchase.

With a lot of cash in our account it was time to look for new investment opportunities.  After a proposal from Marc van Loon and Yael Potjer we decided it was time for us to buy ETF’s. Today we purchased 45 shares of the iShares MSCI Switzerland ETF and 16 shares of the iShares MSCI Emerging Markets Asia ETF.

Last but not least, Diederik Koopman convinced, in a really unique presentation, enough members that Lucas Bols is a good investment. Today we bought 60 shares of Lucas Bols.

Update!

We have a website! Of course this website has already been around for several years but it looked terrible and was rarely updated.  We improved the website and from now on we will regularly update you on our activities and meetings. We found a really cool article deep in our archives while we were updating this website. In 2010 we were interviewed by Het Financiële Dagblad( the Dutch Financial Times). You can find the article here:
