          I have money set aside for emergency funds, and also in to STI ETF and SSB. Looking to move on to my next step of investment. Should I go for dividend stocks or growth stocks?

          Especially since I lean more towards the risk adverse side, and also don't have a lot of time to monitor my stocks

              What are your thoughts?

              When I started, it was dividend stocks, and the best one would be REITs. Seeing that you lean more towards rise adverse, I think REITs would be suitable for you. They give about ~5% returns annually. If you would like to take a read at it, you can start from here: https://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/stocks-share...

              For growth stocks, you would need to be able to identify and take the volatility. And you can't really find that in Singapore as the businesses listed here are more or less pretty matured already.

                  If you are risk adverse, then you should not be doing too much stocks, or even none at all.

                  However if you do want to enter, then you would be better off with either stable dividend paying stocks, or diverisified ETFs or funds. However, you will have to monitor your investments (note: investments, not just stocks) since you can't expect things to run on their own.

                  I won't recommend growth stocks since they have massive price swings and are mostly in overseas markets; you will really need to spend time understanding them, monitoring them, and finding an entry point.
