June was a wonderful month. Being European, I have learnt to spend the year awaiting summer – what I consider to be the most special time of the year ☀️. When the days are getting longer and hotter, there’s nothing better than traveling to the mountains and going mountain biking. So, this year, after I had returned from the US in early June, I went on a #vanlife trip through the mountains of Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Italy, and France – working remotely in the mornings and evenings👨💻 , and exploring different trails during the day time 🚴♀️. It was great! 🥳
In terms of my P2P auto-investment portfolios, there was not much change this past month. Honestly, there are days where I log into my accounts, take a quick glimpse around, and then log out as there is literally nothing to do.
What’s been interesting this past month is that Swaper’s performance has been weaker than before. Due to the rather significant cash drag, the self calculated XIRR has dropped to 11.35% percent. Most of my loans on Swaper are paying 14% interest, but with almost constantly 600-1000 EUR awaiting investment, the average interest rate dropped by 1.7 percentage points since last month.

Mintos: Mintos really is such a great platform. I adjusted my auto-invest portfolios to only include loan originators with ratings from A+ to B-. I updated the Mintos review to reflect what I had adjusted in my auto-invest portfolio.
Grupeer: While I still do not trust the platform 100% – maybe due to their outdated UI? – Grupeer has now taken the lead with a self-calculated interest rate of 12.05% p.a. in June. Also, June was the first month in which I received a 3-digit interest payment from Grupeer (123.05 EUR)
Envestio: I signed up for an account with Envestio but have been too hesitant so far to invest due to mixed reviews that I have read.
Twino: I left Twino earlier this year.
ETF Overview – June 2019 🥳
The MSCI World ETF was exceptionally strong in May and I am glad that 42% of my total investment portfolio is an MSCI World ETF. Overall, my ETF portfolio has gained 17.18 % in value since the beginning of the year (36.14 % since I first started investing in March 2016).
