Yesterday afternoon (03 August 2023), I had the honour of being invited by Ms Olivia Higgins from MooMoo Singapore to be on the latest episode of the ‘Playing with FIRE’, a monthly show by MooMoo Singapore, hosted by Ms Higgins herself, where she interview financial experts on their financial journey.
During the half hour session, I shared about:
- My investment journey, and how ‘The Singaporean Investor’ came about (it was from 2 problems that I face as a financial newbie)
- 2 main concerns that REIT investors have at the moment, and my views about them
- The 4 things I look at when it comes to shortlisting REITs to add on to my investment portfolio
- 1 biggest misconception that people have about the Singapore market
- And more…
For those of you who have missed out on the ‘live’ session yesterday, you can check out the replay of it below:
Correction: During the video, when I was asked about how young investors can get started, I mentioned the can start off by investing in the Straits Times Index (STI) ETF, and that they only need to buy 100 shares to get started – I made a mistake there, because with effect from 17 January 2022, for ETFs listed on the Singapore Exchange, the minimum is just 1 share – meaning you only need S$3+, plus brokerage fees, to start investing in the STI ETF. Apologies for the error.
I hope you will find the sharing in the ‘live’ session yesterday useful – appreciate it if you could give the video a ‘like’ if you have learned something from it!
If there’s anything you like to ask, or if there are any comments and/or suggestions you may have, please let me know in the comments section below, or drop me a message here. I will do my best to respond to the very best of my ability.
