Brecht (founder) – LinkedIn

Georgios – LinkedIn

“Born and raised in Greece, currently a Master student of General Management at Vlerick Business School in Brussels, my passion for economics and finance began in 2010 during my first year of my BSc. I have a passion for domestic and international politics and consequently try to follow as much as possible to understand the variation in global dynamics. I believe in a free market that operates within borders set by governments only to ensure justice and fairness for the weaker part of the population.”


“Glen is an Australian suffering from a lack of life direction and feeling of meaninglessness. After having worked as a Risk Analyst for KPMG Australia for 2 years, Glen decided to come to Brussels and enjoy Belgian waffles and beers”




Ygrids prefers a holistic approach. In order to make the content digestible for as many readers as possible, we try to keep phrasing simple but effective. By using many graphs and figures , the reader will be able to quickly interpret several mechanisms. Please keep in mind that English is not our native language.

Although the content varies greatly, there is a bias towards the stock market and investing. Each article will contain a clear link to an investment strategy. While this doesn’t damage the quality of reporting, it serves as a bonus treat for those interested in investing.
