Could anyone share the difference between PA Insurance and DI Insurance in a way that's easy to be understood?

May claim DI if due to illness and not accident, accident and illness can happen to anyone. illness might have to look at family history to determine risk.

I will choose to take scrips, because i have no intention to sell even if dbs goes to $1. so i won't care even if I am allocated odd lots.

For cash management accounts like endowus and stashaway they mostly invest in lion global money market funds Would it be better to invest directly in lion global and save the roboinvestors mgmt fee?

How I wish I could too. but for some reasons, unless you are an accredited investor or an institution, the fund managers will not accept direct investments. rich get richer. but stashaway and endowus fees are much lower than if you were buy through an insurance platform. at least better than nothing.

Should I cancel my insurance plan? I am reaching 55 next year, i am considering whether to cancel my WL insurance which i have brought in year 1985 and put it into CPF to earn 4% interest. Is it a good idea?

Not sure about the policy plan details and objective, but if it was me and the plan broke even, and i do not need the plan for estate planning. then, yes, i will find another better yielding instrument. (i assume since 1985 until now should have at least break even, if not already have some gains, but please do check) but take note that there is limit to how much you can put cash into CPF each year.

Not sure what your time horizon and objectives are, but i encourage everyone especially newbies to generally start with globally diversified ETFs. possible to invest a lump sum or contribute a little every month.

My friend told me the forex trading earns a lot more than normal investment. Any advice?

Putting aside whether is scam or not, MAS regulated or not, I believe it is possible, but will not be consistent. But forex uses leverage and so is higher risk if not done properly. Which means your $1000 can be wiped out easily as well.

First investment was an ILP bought more than 10 years ago. no prizes for guessing whether make or lost money. Not too long ago wrongly trusted investment courses which costs few thosands $$. This time not only lost money in the courses but also lost money in market.

StashAway

Endowus

Syfe

If I have $500 monthly for investing (ie goal to 30k in X years), between Stashaway (16% risk) vs Endowus (Balanced) vs Syfe Equity100 - which is better? Is it wise to have 3 Robo accounts simultaneously?

I have all 3, but for different purposes from yours. Each of the portfolio you mentioned has different risk management strageties. Eg Stashaway uses gold and gov bonds, whereas endowus uses coporate bonds unit trusts. Syfe100 is totally in equities. all things equal, i will choose the one with lower fees.
