Change of the investment climate in real estate.

The free market economy, in which suppliers and buyers agree on a price for a good, is probably one of the most important foundations of a democratically oriented society. Anyone who intervenes politically with regulations in this sensitive market structure should also be aware of the consequences and their responsibilities. This is the case with the rental price brake planned in Berlin and the property expropriations also discussed at the...

Yields and other Investment Criteria.

Some time ago, investments in securities have been valued after the annual return in the form of a dividend distribution.

It is about the Bitcoin. Within three months its course value has trebled and then jumped back down to the starting position. This volatility brought the Bitcoin at the beginning of the year in the headlines and announced him to a broader group of people.
