Training for the World Championship

We are now one month out to the ÖTILLÖ Swimrun World Championship. Me and my partner Tomas Granberg of team Savelend are preparing a series of Swimrun Watch podcasts about the championship race.

Needless to say, we are also in the middle of our specific training for the event. A few days ago we were out on the World Championship course for a four hour training session. I’ll leave you with a few pictures of that and an introduction of our lovely sponsor Savelend.

Team sponsor: Savelend

Savelend is Sweden’s oldest now active peer-to-peer lending platform. The platform offers many types of credit investments now available to common people like you and me. Savelend has a target annual return of 7–9 %, yet the current average annual return is 10.8 % (August 2021). This speaks to Savelend’s habit to over deliver rather than over promise.

Savelend is currently working on internationalization, however currently on the retail side of things, Savelend is only open to Swedish investors.

When using the Savelend platform, you may turn on the smart invest feature to have the system make efficient use of your hard earned cash automatically. The savvy investor may instead pick preferred allocation to different credit types, such as housing projects, SME loans, consumer credits, factoring or debt collection. Also, there is a secondary market if you would like to withdraw cash prior to maturity.

If you have left over money sitting at a checking account with close to zero interest, remember MONEY SHOULDN’T SLEEP! — and head on over to Also, with current stock market valuations, investors might want to take part of their money off the table and put it into credits — especially with such an attractive yield.

Disclaimer: This is not financial advise. Financial investments may go up or down in value and it is not guaranteed that you will keep your initial investment value. Also, I’m myself an investor on the Savelend platform, I own stock in the company (Nasdaq Stockholm SSME ticker: YIELD) and I used to work for the Savelend group.

Gonna swim there!
Money shouldn’t sleep!
