Week 34 – Is the time ripe for alternative investments or is it better to stick with ETFs?
An ETF (exchange-traded fund) is a collection of investments that are traded on an exchange – like stocks. There are ETFs that contain stocks, bonds, commodities or a combination of all three. ETFs track indices such as the DAX (or the MSCI World) and therefore require much less management effort.
Therefore, unlike funds, ETFs are less expensive, have no minimum investment amount and are traded like shares throughout the day. An interesting instrument to build up a well-diversified investment portfolio.
Alternative investments are investments that do not belong to the usual investment categories (shares, bonds, cash). These include private equity, hedge funds, real estate, commodities, etc., but also art, handbags, watches, wines, cryptocurrencies and also NFTs. More here

My favourites? I especially like these two tips: „Speed up playback of a voice message“ and „Bookmark important messages“.
Another great tip that is unfortunately missing here: exchange contact details via QR code. Go like this:
Open WhatsApp and go to Settings
Next to your name you will find the symbol for a QR code.
If you click on it, your QR code will be displayed so that someone else can scan it and save it as a contact 😉
