European DGI

It's my desire to retire early via Dividend Growth Investing as a passive income stream. This is not easy and especially when living in Europe. That's why I started this blog and share my journey: to give you a European perspective.

your dividend ETF choices are not available for European investors. It would be nice if you could show your “european” selection

Thank you. I’m really new at investing, since last year. I’m 63 years, so have to choose extremely wisely, and am learning quite a bit since I found your site. I’m investing through the bank, so they take up between 30 and 60 euro for buying and selling. My portfolio has more single dividend companies, equity, and only 3 ETF’s and I now I know what to look in etf’s. Thanks

Own both DGRO and SCHD and love both of them. If I do not know where to put my money, I simply buy SCHD.

Nice overview – thanks for all information and your thoughts. What about (did you consider) DIVO – has quite higher yield (5%) and also interesting top holdings, among others also MS, Apple,… it is more concentrated though…
