It’ll depend on what is your end goal to your investments, if you’re looking at hedgling against inflation, then SSBs is probably one of the best ways to hedge against inflation. However do note that bonds in general is like lending people money for a period of time and you get compensated with regular interest rate. It’s is not something that will grow over time like businesses or REITS or ETFs. It’s like a coupon that allows you to claim your money back after a period of time. if you’re looking to grow your money, then setting aside a small portion of your money into bonds so that you have your back covered then you can proceed to grow your money with the other investment instruments out there. Wishing you a wonderful investing journey ahead!

Personal preference, I’ll go for stocks for its dynamism in the market. Bonds in general are more towards wealth preservation. At the start of the transaction, you‘ll know what would be the end value of your investments but your money will be stucked throughout the duration of the bond. A lot of opportunities and events can happen from the time you transact to the end of your bond period. Stocks, on the other hand, would require slightly more effort in monitoring and nurturing your portfolio.but in return you get more flexibility with your money and potentially higher returns over time as the money you invested in it is used as the same purpose as to how your money would be used if let says the company issues a bond. Cheers to a wonderful investing journey ahead!

I think you have to take into account a few factors,mainly like what Adrian has mentioned, the amount you’re setting aside every month And the costs that comes with every trade. A few other factors to consider as well could be the price you’re paying for the stocks, sometimes if you consistently purchase a particular stock at a rising price, you’re averaging up your holdings in it and if all’s good then its still ok bit if you were to miscalculate, you might be in for a surprise. Vice versa for a stock at a falling price. Investing on a monthly basis is still possible if you have a watchlist of stocks and if one of the stocks happens to hit the target price you’re comfortable in paying and by all means. This way you’ll be able to work your money more productively. Cheers to a wonderful investing journey ahead!

It’s indeed very safe but the 2 main risks to it are 1. If somehow our government / MAS collapses. 2. Opportunity Cost, it takes a month to withdraw whatever money you put into. If a good opportunity comes by and your money is tied in it. you might lose a good opportunity to gain a better investment.

I would think starting in Singapore would be the safer option given the close proximity you have with your investment, its very important at the start to know what you’re putting your money into and starting in our local market can give you the experience needed to venture into other overseas market in the future. Even though our market may be small, we still have our fair share of investments instruments that you can venture into such as equities to REITS to ETFs and bonds. Wishing you a wonderful investing journey ahead!

One important factor to consider when you’re investing with a small capital is the transaction costs and your room for error. although many people advise that “time in the market is better than timing the market”, choosing the wrong company to buy in just because you want to get”time” in the market can lead to a bad outcome. nonetheless, it would serve as a good lesson in your investment journey. I think choosing your investment strategy is a good way to start your investment journey, are you more of a risk taker or you prefer a more conservative way of investing. From there on, you will have a clearer picture on how you can begin your investment journey. wishing you a wonderful investing journey ahead!

For a start, you can start with industries that you’re more familiar in to understand how the business operates as all the different industries operates differently from each other. There’s a lot of industries you can look into like what Leonard has shared. After which you can select a few companies to deep dive into and understand more before making any decisions. it would also be good to take into considerations your own preferred form of investing whether you’re more towards a growth or income/dividend strategy. considering the macro conditions of the economy will help a little too. wishing you a wonderful investing journey ahead!

I would consider it a good buy but given the current high market valuation of REITS, it‘ll be a good choice to enter once valuation drop. Stable management with a very strong sponsor backing them, good to hold for long term for dividend but definitely not a growth stock.
