Hi, I'm currently a uni student and hold some investments in StashAway. I'm planning to "officially" start my investment journey in both SG and US market, any advice?

I'm planning to use firstrade to buy US growth stocks and DBS Vickers to buy SG dividend stocks. I'm still thinking if I should include any ETFs, currently I'm looking at the STI ETF. Would love to hear your thoughts on this, thank you!

I recently wrote an article sharing my portfolio as a 21 year old dude. Been investing for 3 years, my portfolio strategy has evolved very much and I am pleased to share that majority of my holdings are in blue chip growth stocks and DBS as my dividend cum capital appreciation stock. You may take a look at the article.

I think having ETF in your portfolio is great as you can get hold of the overall market while still picking your highest conviction growth stocks. However, I would not choose STI ETF as the ETF but instead will choose S&P 500 ETF, based on past performance.

My advice is to concentrate on career until you have 50k. This amt will make sure you have the right personal finance habits (expense control, budgeting, savings etc). Also, the main propeller of your networth is still your career until your accumulate amt of money can generate returns higher than your salary.

Focus on career and earning power. It'll be the first tranche of gold before you can even do anything else.
