Where can I learn more about ETFs? What are some key things that I should know wrt this?

What are your thoughts?

I get comfortable with ETF from using StashAway. Would advise that if you are unfamiliar, can start small with StashAway, read their article, attend their seminar(they have classes in their apps as well). Aft you get used to the term and how to diversify via different etf, maybe you can start invest in etf.

Read article on financial horse website as well!

This is an awesome step-by-step guide on how to get started: https://blog.moneysmart.sg/invest/sti-etf-guide...

Dr. Money has a very informative webinar on the mechanisms behind ETFs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=817r_p1cihw

i'm in the same shoes as you, becoming 40 this year too. jia you!​​​

Hey! Seedly actually has great resources! Some places include Heartland Boy, DrWealth etc. ETFs are a great way to start, for starters because they are diversified (do note the industries of certain ETFs, NASDAW for example is highly focused on tech companies) so you don't have to be scratching your hair over a failed investment. With the current market right now (everything is on sale haha), your strategy might be to do dollar-cost averaging (a regular allotment to invest) instead of doing a lump sum. PhillipCapital actually has great webinars for beginner investors!

If you feel that its really too much work to read up, you might wanna consider getting an Investment-Linked Plan (ILP) with a trusted agent.

You can start via robo advisors. Meanwhile, you can visit websites such as seedly to learn more about investing and personal finance in general.

Yes, my feeling is that ETFs are the best longterm investing choice for us.

you must be able to put...
