Is DBS Digiportfolio a good place to begin my investment journey? Along with DBS Vickers to purchase select US company shares I prefer?

First time investor - here is my background:

  • Have upwards of 7-8 months of savings in my Multiplier account
  • Can save approx 6k every month - out of which I want to invest 3-4k (the rest will be transferred to family abroad)
  • With the remaining 3k I can save every month I was thinking of the following
    a) 1.5k per month into DBS Digiportfolio Asia
    b) 1.5K per month into select US stocks I plan to buy individually

Would this be a good strategy for a first timer? what should I look out for

    What are your thoughts?

    Sounds good for an individual whom dont want to spend time monitoring the market, and is disciplined to commit to DCA long-term basis.

    But if you want to buy US stocks, you had to define your investment objective, goals first

      A useful article on individual stock selection:

      https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstrac...

      TLDR Version: With over 60,000 firms and stock data, the best performing 811 firms (1.33% of total) accounted for all of the net global wealth creation. Meaning, your success rate as a professional, let alone a first timer would be 1.33% to choose the right stock for long-term success.
