As with other developed countries, the demographics of Norway are changing. We're living longer and producing less offsprings. This add pressure on the public financials, as the future income-tax per capita is declining. Their solutions? Trying to get the population to save more!
It's another slow month for my portfolio, and I've been taking some time off myself. But my monthly paying stocks are still doing their business, and I'm glad to see one of my new investments paying its dividend this "off-month".

It's been quiet on this blog for the past couple of weeks, and the dividend report of June is actually twelve days late. Why? It's vacation time! But while I've been away, my portfolio has been at work as usual.
I bought my first preference shares the other day. An equity type not very popular in the dividend growth community, with a very well reasoning due to the fact that the dividends typically don't grow. But I thought I should give it a try.
