You can either focus on short term side hustles like doing online surveys, doing freelance, which is easy and have high payout, but down the road the sum is quite insignicant. But if you can focus on creating content, eg Udemy tutorials, YouTube, taking photos to sell, this side hustle will snowball into a very very large amount later on. Simply because it's scalable. Here's my list of top 10 side hustles which you can check out (yes, i'm hustling too) https://youtu.be/zEKi-WePWFY

S&P 500 Index

Online Brokerages

ETF

I am interested to invest in the S&P 500 Index. Should I do it through Standard Chartered Bank/FSMOne and bear the risk of a custodian brokerage account or are there other better brokerages?
I would choose either Saxo or Interactive Brokers because they have the lowest fee. Saxo min comm: USD4, with annual fee 0.12% IB min comm: USD1, if total less than $100k has min fee $10/month which can be offset by commissions Check out my video where i compare the rates and step by step guide how to use them: https://youtu.be/ZeLeKD4TS4

Singapore Airlines (SIA)

COVID-19

I am new to investing. Any thoughts of buying SIA shares with the intention to hold on for long term? Given that the price is quite low, is it a wise choice?
There's only 1 reason you should buy a stock: Does the company have a bright future? Look at SIA price for the past 10 years. Look at the airlines industry. SIA has no moat, and unless it fix this issue, the price will either stagnant or keep going lower.

Robo-Advisors

Undergraduate

Personal Finance Books

Investment Courses

How should I go about learning how to invest as an undergraduate?
Here's an unpopular opinon, I would avoid reading books at the start. First, it's extremely boring. Second, it's teaches only the basics. For example trying to read The Intelligent Investor was actually torturous to me. But it would be easier if I had a prior knowledge in investing. Instead, I started learning about investing from live people: i) YouTube: Start from YouTubers like Graham Stephan, Andrei Jikh, any Singaporean investing channel like Fifth Person or even my channel (www.youtube.com/ahvin2020) ii) Go through InvestingNote.com. Learn from the community about their thoughts on real Singapore stocks. RoboAdvisor is a good place to start. You won't learn about investing there though, but at least you still get to grow your money. Then once you invest for real, you can get a potentially much higher return than a roboadvisor.

I am considering doing RSP monthly into VOO and NikkoAM REITs ETF. What are your thoughts? Any advice?
Voo is good. But get an ireland domiciled version of it to save on 15% tax on dividends. https://blog.seedly.sg/how-to-invest-in-ireland-domiciled-sp500-etfs/?amp=1 NikkoAm reits is good too bcos u will get a good dividend income. Spdr sti etf is bad in my opinion the biggest holdings are banks n telcos.

I'm a newbie in stocks investment. I'm 31 yrs old and have 30k, interested in ST eng as i see that it drop from 4.4 to 3.3. Is it a good time to buy?
Do you see any long term prospect with this stock? Like what are their future plans? If you see that it will grow, any price now is a good price.

Payments

Credit Cards

When given a choice between full payment or pay by instalment without interest, which would be a better option? What are some considerations to take note of?
I would choose pay by instalment, but with criterias: - if it charges to credit card, make sure its a credit card you want to keep - i invest the spare cash instead of spending on more stuff

NYSE (New York Stock Exchange)

US stocks rally following the Fed corporate bond announcement. Is it a good time to invest now?
Look longer term, like 10 years, 20 years later when everything has gone up by a lot. I also discussed about this in one of my videos that timing the market rarely works https://youtu.be/_blfAyVY4D4 Maybe you timed it perfectly at the 30% drop, but does it even make a difference when in the future everything has gone up 100-200%?

Why does investing feel like I'm "spending money"?
You might be looking too closely at the stock price. It does seem like spending money if you only see your stock price go down. But if the price appreciates over the long term, it's kinda like your money recruiting more money for you.
