👋 Welcome to MoneyMinority!
What is it?
What do you get if you mix Finance, Money Management, Investments, Cryptocurrencies, ETFs, add doses of Philosophy, Psychology, and Personal Development, and throw in some humour at the end?
I’d love to say “MoneyMinority!” but to be honest with you, I’d say “what MoneyMinority is trying to be!“.
Who am I?
My name is Stergios (or Sterg), an internet freelancer with a natural desire to create and consume content about the aforementioned topics.
What you will find here:
I’ve kept an active blog since 2018 so, as you can tell, I love expressing myself through the written word. I believe that writing is the most effective method to learn and, at the same time, one of the most rewarding ways to express your creativity and ideas.
Combine the fact that I am passionate about many different subjects simultaneously, and you have a recipe that creates a chaos of information that is difficult to navigate.
So for everyone’s convenience, I have organized the content of the blog into the following categories. Take a look and, if you find something that interests you, read it:
📙 Detailed Guides for Beginners:
The analytical guides are the backbone of MoneyMinority. Each guide tackles a unique topic, approaches it holistically, tries to analyse it from the ground up and simplifies it to make it understandable to any beginner. I try not to approach each topic as an authority but as a beginner who does his research, composes his text and, simultaneously, learns.
- Investment Guide [from A to Z]
- Stocks for Beginners
- Stock Market Guide
- ETFs Guide
- Cryptocurrency Guide
- Real Estate Guide
- Gold Market Guide
- Bonds Guide
- P2P Lending Guide
- Trading Guide
- Technical Analysis Guide
- Forex Guide
- Options Guide
- Personal Business Tax Guide
- DeFi Guide
ETFs are top-rated investment products that have quickly become the first investment choice for millions of investors worldwide. They are investment vehicles that can be used by investors who do not have in-depth market knowledge and do not have (or do not want) to spend the time on the analysis required to build a diversified portfolio by themselves.
In the following articles, you will find material to help you get the most out of them:
- ETFs Guide for Beginners
- UCITS ETFs: What They Are & How They Are Taxed
- How do I calculate the return of an ETF?
- Bond ETFs vs Bonds
I am in the process of writing a detailed eBook around ETFs. It will be geared around the investor and will grasp the topic holistically. From A to Z. Sign up for the Newsletter to be notified when it’s ready.
In the last few years, Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in general have caught my interest so, as you can see, they couldn’t be missing from the blog.
If you are a beginner, the following articles will help you to smoothly introduce yourself to the market by recognizing its true value and protecting yourself from scams, lies and promises of get-rich-quick schemes.
Bitcoin has something much deeper to offer than what is being peddled…

I will monitor its performance every 6 months and post the results on Patreon.
