My monthly review of my Vrijheid Fonds.
Yes, this weekend it was spreadsheet day 😉
And so it is time to write a post about my favorite topic, dividends. Let see how much passive income I have received in September. The last month of a quarter is always a good month. So what kind of month was it for my Vrijheid Fonds. I had two dividend increases. Target raised its dividend with 3.3% and BHP Billiton with 7,5%.
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 € 438.51 ($ 518.03) in passive income.
If we take a closer look, the dividend was coming from:
Royal Dutch Shell A (RDS) € 140.20
Unilever (UN) € 74.05
Aflac (AFL) € 7.42
Archer-Daniels-Midland (ADM) €9.44
Billiton PLC – ADR (BBL) € 21.84
Chevron (CVX) € 27.198
Johnson&Johnson (JNJ) € 27.20
McDonalds (MCD) € 14.20
Microsoft (MSFT) € 8.98
Realty Income (O) € 7.61
Southern Company (SO) € 20.87
Target (TGT) € 31.23
Wal-Mart (WMT) € 16.52
Rabobank Certificate € 22.34
Tax correction (OHI) € 4.92
Tax correction (O) € 3.71
That makes a total of € 438.51, this is a 23.25% increase from last years September. I proud of this increase. This means that my snowball is slowly getting momentum.

In 2017 I received a total in passive income of € 2323.10
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 September is €84.924, which is an increase of 3.75% over last month (€81,851). I again donated € 400 of fresh capital to my Vrijheid Fonds and € 100 for my mutual Fund for my “Safe-haven-sleep-well” part of my Vrijheid Fonds.
The exchange rate of the Dollar against the Euro has a big influence on the value of my Vrijheid Fonds. More than half of my Vrijheid Fonds consist of US-stocks. And because the Dollar has gained momentum since last month, the value of my Vrijheid Fonds has risen.
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.
