Hello there! If you're looking to earn dividends, one option to consider could be Syfe's REIT+ portfolio. It contains 20 quality Singapore REITs and tracks the SGX iEdge S-REIT Leaders Index.

It is especially ideal for DCA as well. Purchasing S-REITs through your broker is expensive because of all the commisions you'll need to pay, more so if you DCA into REITs. However, all Syfe portfolios have no brokerage charges or trading costs. This makes our portfolios more cost efficient for monthly DCAs.

For exposure to global equities, you can consider Syfe Equity100. This is a 100% equities portfolio that holds ETFs like the S&P 500 UCITS ETF, Invesco QQQ, iShares MSCI EAFE ETF and more. Overall, these ETFs give you exposure to over 1,500 stocks the likes of Apple, Amazon and Microsoft.

If you want to get a more personalised plan, please feel free to speak with our friendly wealth experts for a complimentary consultation! I hope this helps :)

At the same time, depending your objectives, you have to evaluate on your commitment whether to build up your investment knowledge.

If you want to earn dividends on a monthly basis, there are several mutual funds that you can explore that allows you to have dividends monthly. It all depends on your risk appetite and financial resources to align suitable investments for you.
