About: I am late to the game on financial independence (FI) but have a rough five year plan. It’s rough since I’m not totally sure whether the next phase of my life will involve working full-time or not. More on that in a later post. My current full-time work is pension and investment advisory work. I advise companies on their pension plans and investment strategies. Does that make me qualified to talk about FI? You can judge that from the content you find here. I’m fascinated by the huge difference in philosophy and financial strategies between the FI community and the establishment of actuarial thought and institutional investing. In particular, I want to explore in this blog the intersection of these two worlds. Can one inform the other, or will they forever remain neighbors refusing to make eye contact and not sharing cups of sugar?
Year Started: 2017
Over the arc of my life and career a shift started to happen where I realized that I was at the point where I could stop working for other people to get financial independence and start working for myself to achieve happiness. I couldn’t find a good manual for how to do this so I started doing a bunch of reading on my own and this site was born. Learn more ►
Hi there! glad to have you on my blog. I am a big fan of personal finance and I am looking forward to sharing everything I know as well as point you to a plethora of resources available at your disposal. Now, a little bit about me. I was born in Maracaibo, Venezuela in 1980 and I think that makes me a border line millennial with some behaviors from Generation X. I was raised by frugal parents who taught me the value of hard work and saving for the future.I truly believe my journey to FI started with the lessons my parents taught me when I was a kid. I can still remember my dad saying .. “son, when things are going great that is when you should be saving the most because you don’t know when things are going to go bad“. In the context of FI, I can say this has been one of the most important lessons in my life so thanks Dad!
The journey continues but now I plan to bring others on my quest for achieving Financial Independence. Learn more ►

I’m a Norwegian guy in my early 30’s. My interests are photography, nice whisky, watches, technology, but perhaps more on that later, because my biggest interest is finance and growth of money. Inspired by the book "Think and Grow Rich", by Napoleon Hill, I wrote down a money target a few years ago. This target I was able to reach and I am now defining my new goal. My investments are about to hit 2 million kroner (≈ $230,000) distributed in stocks, mutual funds, saving accounts and a few other investments. My next goal is to reach 6,5 million kroner (≈ $745,000) within the next 10 years. Learn more ►
The goal of my work on Of Dollars And Data is to help you make better financial decisions using the best information available. Ultimately, I want you to live a smarter, richer life. Though the ideas presented on this blog won’t revolutionize finance, they will provide you with a different perspective on money that you can use in your everyday life. I am sure of this because of the hundreds of hours of research that went into the more than 200 posts currently published on this blog. Learn more ►
