Dominik: "Selma did not have any snag"
Interview / Clients
Hi, I am Dominik. 👋 I am 23 years old and currently work in child care. Next year I would like to follow my passion and start studying psychology. Aside from that I am also quite active on Instagram, where I got a lot of followers by coincidence. But that's another story. 😅
What experiences did you have with investing in the past?
Like most people in my age, I didn't really think and care much about finance or investing. It is a topic that they don't teach well enough in school and you only get confronted with it later in your life.
The moment I noticed that the management fee at my bank was higher than the interest rate, I decided to look deeper into it and start investing on my own.
However, the frustrating thing is that for outsiders like me investing feels very obscure. It seems a bit shady, very complex and it is really difficult to completely trust someone.

How did you get to know Selma?
I found Selma on Reddit, while I was browsing through some Investment Subreddits. First I was convinced that there had to be a snag somewhere.
Mostly when something is too good to be true there are some bad surprises hidden in the fine-print.
I took my time to read into Selma and couldn't find anything though. If anything, I was positively surprised how clear and easy everything was depicted.
What makes Selma different?
Selma's way of communication is personal, sympathetic and professional.
That's easy to answer: the way of communication! One day I asked the team a question at a very unusual time (1 AM) in their live chat. I expected an answer within one or two days. but to my surprise it came within 4 minutes!
Selma's way of communication is personal, sympathetic and professional. The classical, maybe even planned to be intimidating distance between client and advisor does not exist at Selma.
What would you like to improve about Selma?
To be honest, I don't have any big improvement suggestions. An application for my mobile phone would be nice in order to have an easy overview of my investments all the time. But all in all I am very happy with Selma.
