Starting EU PP, doubts about the bonds part

So I'm starting a European PP, and in my last topic I was looking into the stocks part of the PP. Now I'm looking at the bonds part, and things are very confusing for me. When I read the (2012) book, things look really simple for a European: get German bonds and be done with it. But I've done some r...

Re: Starting in Europe, questions

I'll try to answer your questions. Excellent answers, thanks! As for stocks, based on TER I'm looking at iShares Core Euro STOXX 50. It's decently sized, has full physical replication, and crazy low TER. I'd like to compare that to something like Think European Equity. This is by far the smallest f...

Re: Starting in Europe, questions

For starters, I've opened an account with a broker. After reading the book, I feel the principles are simple and...
