September 2018, Month review of my Vrijheid Fonds

My monthly review of my Vrijheid Fonds.

I know spreadsheet day is already way behind us, so it is time to write my month review. A post about my favorite topic, dividends. Let see how much passive income I have received in September. And what kind a month it was for my Vrijheid Fonds.


Month review


I had two dividend increases for my Vrijheid Fonds. Target raised its dividend with 3.2% and BHP Billiton raised its dividend with 14.55%.



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 € 481.46 ($ 558.73) in passive income.

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

Royal Dutch Shell A (RDS) € 128.69
Unilever (UN) € 81.29
Aflac (AFL) € 8.96
3M (MMM) € 9.14

YoY Increase

That makes a total of € 481.46, this is a 9.79% increase from last years September. I proud of this increase. This means that my snowball is getting momentum.

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 September is €102,984,whichis an increase of 0.75% over last month (€ 102,220).  I again donated € 400 of fresh capital to my Vrijheid Fondsand € 100 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.

    Great month Pollie, and I like seeing that we share 6 dividend paying companies this month! That total account value is heading in the right direction and will be boosted by those two nice increases.

    Keep up the great work and here is to a fantastic Q4 for all of us!
