February 2017, Month review of my Vrijheid Fonds

It is time to tell you how my month of February was. The most important thing about last month was a a well-deserved holiday with my family. It is really nice to spend quality time together. I have a great and healthy family, so I’m the richest man there is!


Month review


This is a blog post about my favorite topic, dividends!  I hope this post inspires other people out there to start saving and investing as soon as they can.  The power you feel knowing that you are richer than you were yesterday and you didn’t have to work a minute for it, is a wonderful feeling.



In total I received €132.19 ($139.92) in passive income in February. My Vrijheid Fonds had three-dividend increase! Realty Income raised its dividend with 4.0%, Omega Healthcare Investments with 1.60% and AT&T with 2.10%. In total my Vrijheid Fonds has had already 6 dividend raises this year.

If we take a closer look, the dividend was coming from:

  • AT&T (T) €23.61
  • Omega Healthcare Investments (OHI) €71.70
  • Procter & Gamble (PG) €20.43
  • Realty Income (O) € 8.64
  • Mutual Fund: Kempen European High Dividend – X €8.00

That makes a total of €132.19. This is an increase of more than 97% from last years February. This increase was mainly due to the new buys I made last year.

This is great! DGI at work!

Vrijheid Fonds

If we take a look at my Vrijheid Fonds (Freedom Fund), we can see that the value is higher than last month.

My total portfolio value at the end of February is $81,564, which is an increase of 5.13% over last month (€77.586). I again donated € 400 of fresh capital to my Vrijheid Fonds and I bought € 100 worth of mutual Funds for my “Safe-haven-sleep-well” part of my Vrijheid Fonds.

Furthermore I bought 15 shares of JNJ. Read this post for some more information about this recent buy.

Again this month I made a nice step in my journey.
Thanks for reading!





Because all figures I give are in Euro’s. Because the exchange rates is not constant (duh…) my passive income changes per month (even if the dividend stays the same). For the record: I only post my passive income from dividend the month I received it on my brokers account. And it is after taxes.

    Do you know the dividend history for Ahold? For how Many consecutive years have they paid a dividend?

    Kempen European High Dividend is something kind of European ETF consisting of high yeilding companies? If you have some time over please enlighten me!

      Hello Peter,

      Ahold Delhaize (and its predecessor Ahold) has been paying dividend since 1992. However Ahold suspended its dividend from 2003 till 2008 due to a accountancy scandal. Since 2008 it has been paying a yearly increasing dividend.

      Kempen is a normal mutual fund and not a ETF. On its website http://www.kempen.nl you can find all the information you need.
