As I told you about it in September, we decided to switch of online broker for the investments of the savings we put aside for our children.
We’re in the process of switching from Cornèrtrader to DEGIRO.
This article was supposed to be a detailed tutorial on how to make the transfer. But it takes longer than expected on the Cornèrtrader side because we have to send them a postal mail (welcome in 2019!) to transfer all our cash and close our account.
So I had started writing the tutorial. And the first part on opening a DEGIRO account being finished (and especially quite long), I decided to extract it and make an “Epic Guide” out of it as I did for Interactive Brokers.
And I will post the article about the transfer from Cornèrtrader to DEGIRO later this year.
So, if it seems complicated to you to open an investment account at DEGIRO, here is the tutorial that will take you step by step from the first click until the final “Hooray!”:

Unrelated note: I would have loved to have found my own blog at 20 to get off on the right foot and not waste 10 years of savings on useless stuff to impress others… So I’m looking for a way to better target students. So if you are one (apprenticeship, EPFL, UNIL, ETHZ, or any other school or university in Switzerland), could you tell me where you could find this kind of blog? Via a WhatsApp group with friends? Via a sticker in anarchist-mode on the benches of the Uni? Through a school newspaper (does that still exist ^^)? Other? Thank you in advance for your feedback!
