Investments

Savings

Hi! I am currently a student and I have around 30k savings. What should I do with it? I tried reading some of the articles but there's just too many types of investment. What would you recommend for a beginner?

Open a brokerage account and read up on how to invest. Plan what ur portfolio should look like. Read up on asset allocation and portfolio construction like 7 twelve. Then allocate with no more than 5% in any asset. Stay invested and rebalance once in a while. Make use of ETFs. Treat ur funds as if its temasek and make decisions as if u are the boss. Good luck.

REITs

At what stage in my investing journey should I start looking and investing in REITs? Assuming i'm new to investing with little experience. Also, is there any market conditions that would make REITs more favourable in your opinion?

SG REITs outperformed the STI index consistently in the last 5 to 10 years on total return basis. Look at ur investments as a portfolio. Combining good quality REITs ( the 4 Mapletrees, parkway and Ascendas) with the local banks and STI index ETF would give you an excellent start. If banks are to expensive, Sti index ETF is good enough. Invest equally with no single counter making up more than 5% of ur total portfolio unless its an ETF. There is no right or wrong weightage, u just have to jump in and learn along the way.
