Quotes

An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.
Benjamin Franklin
The pension crisis is actually just a crisis of the financing of pensions. There is simply not enough money in Belgium to continue to pay the rising pension burden.

Curvo member Louise at a Curvo meetup

Meet us and like-minded people

We created the meetups to start a community around personal finance. By educating and empowering others to reach their goals, we aim to improve the financial well-being of ourselves and those around us.

We are doing this by sharing experiences and knowledge with like-minded individuals in a fun, no-pressure environment… maybe even over a drink.

In short, meeting, mingling and learning is what we're about.We meet at least once a quarter and discuss all topics related to personal finance: financial independence, investing, saving, budgeting, preparation for pension, taxes...We hope to see you soon at one of the meetups!

Curvo founders Thomas Ketchell and Yoran Brondsema

Hi 👋
We’re Thomas & Yoran.

We’ve been putting money away for a long time. Like everyone else, we keep our money in a savings account. Yet every year, the low returns are disappointing us. The money is sitting there, so there has to be a better way.

We asked our bank, scoured the web, searched far and wide but we couldn’t find what we were looking for: a way to make money from our savings. Instead all we found was jargon, complicated financial “solutions”, horrible stock photos of old men in suits and clunky apps. No thanks. We didn’t feel that they offered a product built for us and our generation.

That’s why we started Curvo. We know we’re not alone.

Our generation is facing a scary financial future

We need to be better prepared financially. Our state-funded pension systems are under increasing pressure due to changing demographics. And unfortunately, our political leaders are not doing what is necessary to prevent a pension crisis.

Savings accounts are not sufficient

Inflation has been above interest rates since 2008. This means that every year, your savings lose some of their value. Yes, you effectively lose money if you keep all your savings in a savings account!

Investing is hard

You have to define your portfolio, find a broker, figure how taxes work,… We've been through this ourselves and realized that acquiring this knowledge and skills takes a lot of time, perseverance and a certain confidence in your own capacity for taking good decisions. The finance world is intimidating, filled with jargon and full of people who want to separate you from your money.

Why Curvo?
