I'm 23 this year just started my full time job and have 6 months of emergency funds, totally new to investment and just recently joined stashaway. Can I invest in a specific ETF that I'm interested in apart from the recommended portfolio?
Robo is a good way to gain exposure to ETFs I don’t put my money with stashaway. I put it with syfe and Kristal. I’m assuming that you already done some form of risk planning (setting aside emergency fund, upgrading your hospital insurance coverage and other insurances) If you have already done the above. My advice to you is to take your time to learn what kind of investor you are. You will make bad trades, you will lock in bad positions and you will fail at least once or twice. But once you’ve figured out your framework that you are comfortable with and are in line with your financial goals that you are working towards, you will start to make consistent gains bud! TLDR - Do risk planning first, discover what kind of investor you are and stick to the plan that you have made. If you’re ready to have a talk and want some professional advice contextualised to your specific situation, I’m contactable at 8666 2197. Reach out to me, I’ll be happy to assist! Best of luck bud! 😬 Kenric

Hi is 10% of asset in bonds too risk adverse for a 27 year old? I have a full time job, no debt and no obligations (single).?
What you need is an investment framework to follow bro. Asking a question like this is very subjective depending on where you get your advice. You need to assess your financial goals, risk profile, time horizon and budget . But most importantly is to create a plan, and stick to it with iron will discipline. If you need any help with this. Feel free to contact me at 8666 2197 Best of luck! Kenric

Where should I save/invest my NS income? I already have 10K in Singlife. Any advice?
Hey bud! The fact that you are asking this question shows that you’re ahead of almost 90% of people who enlist int EMA of maturity. Congratulations on that I’m sure you know that it is important to start investing as early as possible in order to take full advantage of compound interest over your lifetime. However, it is presumptuous of any financial adviser or close friend to give you recommendations and advice based on such little information such as $10,000 in your Singlife account If you’re absolutely serious about doing proper financial planning: 1. How to grow your money 2. How to protect your money It’s far more important to work with a professional within the industry that you can trust to help give you timely advice as anyone can say anything on the internet. I’m contactable at 86662197. Happy to provide you my insights bud! Best regards, Kenric Tan

Education

Fresh Graduates

What was your initial investing capital as a beginner?
SGD $1,000/month (1/2 in ETFs through Robo and other half in mutual funds) For beginners, assuming that you have done proper risk planning, I highly recommend investing in mutual funds or ETFs for beginners with little to no knowledge of how the stock market works. Of course everyone’s situation is different. Best is to speak to a financial advisor or trusted friends who does investments to get a better understanding of your own needs and available investment options. Hope this helps bud! 😬

Just ignore them. Be your own person and live life the way you want to. You only have one chance anyway. If you feel making an excessive amount of money is not for you, just choose not to do it. But remember that having an abundance is always better than having scarcity so please be responsible and do the necessary amount of risk planning to safeguard your present and future sources of income. 😬 You’re the master of your destiny. Never forget that! 👍🏻 Cheers! Kenric
