  1. So it has been mentioned that we should have a thread dedicated to personal investments in stocks, funds. ETF's, etc.   What are you investing in? Are you interested in investing but don't know where to start? I think we have a lot of people here who are interested in this so I just wanted to get the ball rolling.   As for me, I have several investments in the U.S. It is all part of my retirement plan along with a rental property in Munich. I don't think that I can give a whole lot of advice but would like to hear from others.   Currently, I am buying shares of GE while it is going down. I have been invested in GE since 2002 and since it hasn't been doing well lately, I am trying to get my cost basis down a bit. I am confident that it will get back up to at least $50 in the not so distant future. I picked up another 100 shares yesterday at $16.93 and have another order to pick up another 100 at $15.20.   What are the rest of you doing now with the almost 9 year bull market. Taking some off the table? Still investing? 
  2. Taxes on Stock Options

    I have the opportunity to exercise 100 stock options of my previous employer for € 5 per share. The current value approved by the tax office is € 30.   In order to check its worthiness, I was wondering about:   1- Will my tax change be in the area of having my taxable income increased by 2500 Euros (i.e. If I currenlty earn 50k per year , then I will be taxed for 52500)? 2- If I decided to sell the stocks after vesting them, do I have to pay an another tax than in the one above? 3- When does the tax office demand taxes (next year tax return?)   Many Thanks
  3. Mutual Fund Management Expats

    Dear all, we recently were told that we cannot keep our investment accounts in the U.S due to regulation. We are registered and working and paying taxes in Germany but go to the U.S. often. They just have to be in compliance with U.S. law which we understand.   Does anyone have any recommendation for a firm with a branch in Berlin for expats that can advise and manage young portfolios? We probably will retire in Germany so this is for the long term project.   We want to avoid paying exorbitant fees of course. We also started looking at Robinhood but that seems based in the U.S. too, is there a good German alternative? Can it be in other EU locations. The other note is that my partner is both an EU and US citizen. So we need someone who can advise on regulation in both Germany and the U.S.   We found Anyone know them?   Looking online has been a bit overwhelming! Recommendations welcome!   Thanks, Alexa
