Hi and welcome to indexfundinvestor.eu!

Thank you for stopping by.

I’m Mário Nzualo and I’m the author of this blog. I’m based in Berlin, Germany.

In 2015 I read the book “A Random Walk Down Wall Street” and started investing in index funds. Over the years I’ve read countless books, blogs and papers on passive investing and personal finance.

In 2018, I created this blog. Here I write about topics related to index/passive investing in a familiar language.

In this blog, you can learn about passive investing and how to actually implement it. You can learn about the peculiarities of passive investing for investors based in Europe and how some US specific matters translate to Europe.

I write to make it easier for other investors to embark on this journey.

I’ve published dozens of posts on my blog and a free email course for beginners.

Do you have any questions or suggestions? Contact me at mario@indexfundinvestor.eu, I’ll be happy to answer.
