The wave of heat has hit Denmark with 30°C and above. Windows are open and having a good draft breeze saves from overheating. People are out by the beach getting tanned, however, this does not seem healthy to me at all. Seems like weather of August is trying to compensate for its predecessor July.
On to results of returns for July 2020. I am continuing the withdrawal process and slowly but staidly reducing my exposure to crowdlending.
|Platform||Deposited EUR||Portfolio total value EUR||Interest income EUR||Affiliate commissions & bonuses||XIRR|
Overall it was a good month where my gratitude goes to readers who take the risk and invest during these turbulent times.
My crowdlending returns for July 2020 was just 5.21 EUR. This of course is expected because only about 250 EUR are generating some returns at the moment. The rest is in loans which are struggling to pay back (Crowdestate – various projects, Viventor – Atlantis Financiers, Mintos – Finko, Aforti).
Highlights for July 2020

Tax considerations when choosing an investment broker
There are benefits of using Nordnet and Saxo Investor over eToro or Degiro in Denmark. The first two will automatically report your income to the tax authority.
One will argue that this is not an issue to do your own tax, however, it adds an extra layer of complexity which would be nice if could be avoided.
Degiro as of 2nd of July 2020 did not offer an automatic reporting to Danish tax authorities.
Overall a positive month which I spent with my closest people. I hope last month was a fruitful month for you as well and if you have some comments or questions to me or others – please do share them.
