About Expat Investor’s Re Founders

The original founders of Expat Investor decided to discontinue with the publication in 2015. Like with many online publications, the fall off in advertising revenue made keeping the publication alive less and less attractive as a traditional advertising-based business model.

In 2017 Andrew Williamson and Ola Degteva re founded Expat Investor with the goal of delivering high quality content that remained free of charge while ensuring that the publication paid for itself using a sponsor based sustainable business model.

From Williamson and Degteva’s point of view the fall off of advertising revenue from online publications wasn’t such a bad thing.

Blindly loading online media with low value adverts that are often annoying and cause slow website performance never did seem like a good way to present Expat investor’s content. Our single sponsor business model means that you receive high quality content without annoying advertisements or, worse, a pay wall.
