I am 28(M), able to set aside about $800 a month to invest. I have some ideas but not sure how to add on. Any advice?

Current plan is to invest $1200-$1600 into a global ETF quarterly and another $200 into SYFE REIT portfolio monthly. Leaving a remainder of $200-300 monthly.

Was initially going to include STI ETF but have decided not to. Not looking to include bonds currently.

Should I continue to invest into the Global ETF and SYFE with the remaining $200-$300 and also when I have more funds in the future, or should I look towards adding something else (i.e. emerging markets/Global small cap/Local stocks)

It depends on which global ETF you are looking at. If the ETF you have chosen is the MSCI World Index (IWDA) which mainly focused on developed countries, then it makes sense to add in EM ETF. However, if you are considering the FTSE All-World Index (VWRA) which already has EM components, then it will be redundant. The difference between the two funds is whether you want a single fund to track the performance of both developed and emerging countries.
