My monthly review of my Vrijheid Fonds. How high was my passive income last month?
Yes, it’s time to write my favorite post. A post about my favorite topic, dividends! I hope this post will inspire others out there to start saving and investing. Okay lets see how much passive income I have received in October. It was a good month for my Vrijheid Fonds.
October was a wild ride. The market dropped a little bit, and gave some nice buying opportunities. Unfortunately I hadn’t enough money to enjoy this opportunity. I only pulled my buy trigger once. What gave me a smile, was the expected dividend increase. Realty Income raised its dividend with 0.20%.
Lets take a look at the numbers and tell you the status of my Vrijheid Fonds and report my passive income for this month. In total I received € 70.69 ($ 80.01) in passive income.
If we take a closer look, the dividend was coming from:
Coca Cola (KO) € 23.43
Franklin Resources (BEN) € 8.63
General Electric (GE) € 5.41
Realty Income (O) € 19.87
South32 LTD (SOUHY) € 3.02
Vereit (VER) € 10.33
That makes a total of € 70.69, this is a 17.44% increase from last years October. Again a nice increase! This means that my snowball is slowly getting momentum.

In 2018 I received a total in passive income of € 2,768.42
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 October is €103,779 which is an increase of 0.77% over last month (€102,985). I donated € 400 of fresh capital to my Vrijheid Fonds and
€ 371 for my mutual Fund for my “Safe-haven-sleep-well”part of my Vrijheid Fonds.
Again this month I made a nice step in my journey.
Thanks for reading!
Because all figures I give are in Euro’s. And 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.
