          Should I further diversify and start investing in Syfe Equity100 if I am already investing in STI ETF, 2 ARK ETFs and 2 Stashaway portfolios (12% & 36%)? How should I best allocate $1000 monthly?

          Current portfolio:
          STI ETF - $100/month, total holdings SGD$5500
          ARKK/ARKW - total holdings USD$2000
          StashAway (12% & 36%) - total holdings SGD$4500

          Considering the following monthly allocation:
          STI ETF - $100/month
          ARKK/ARKW - $500/month (1 unit each)
          StashAway/Syfe/Both - $400/month

          Dilemma:
          1. Do I start investing in Syfe Equity100?
          2. If yes, how do I allocate the $400/month? Do I choose either StashAway/Syfe or invest in both?
          3. Or should I invest in something else entirely?

          Thank you!

              What are your thoughts?

              Like what thefugalstudent has said, there are many overlaps in the portfolio of syfe and stashaway. So you would not be diversifying.

              You should probably look at what your end goal is for them and how long you plan to keep the investments.

              If you can take more risk, you can liquidate all your stashaway and put it into syfe equity 100. This has the highest risk and return probability in the long term. If not you can leave them in stashaway 36 for some bond protection. The stashaway 12 seems abit redundant as it is very similar to the 36 just with less equity allocation but that is up to you.

                  Hi Anon,

                  Personally, I wouldn't invest in both StashAway 36 and Syfe Equity100 as they have a lot of overlaps. In that sense, it wouldn't be so much of diversification, but rather it would be spreading your investments out in different platforms.

                  If you want to use Syfe, perhaps you can consider their REIT+ portfolio. Even though there is a slight overlap of some REITs with the STI ETF, this overlap shouldn't be as big as with StashAway 36 and Equity100.

                  Alternatively, you may choose to pick other ETFs on your own - see which sectors/markets are lacking in your StashAway portfolio that you want to invest in.

                  Hope this helps!

                  Regards,
