    Behind every stock, there is a company and its business environment is constantly changing due to competition, macro outlook, customers behaviours, government intervention, etc.

    Hence, that said there is no "safe stocks".

    Remember that police banner around our neighbourhoods that say "Low crime doesn't mean no crime"?

    Lower risk of insolvency or business going down hill doesn't mean no risk. You will need to monitor these stocks too.

    If you feel confident in learning and analysing about them, you can try your hands in stocks. Otherwise, DCA in US ETFs (you may want to go for Ireland-domiciled ones to have a lower witholding tax) with robo-advisors (or FSMOne) can be a viable option.

      I think you should do an in depth research on the stock before buying any at all. Not only buy the "Popular" stocks.

      For ETF, average historical return rates are 7% per annum. Depending on your risk appetite.​​​

        You can separate into 2 parts.

        1 part for DCA into S&P500 through FSMOne, because DCA through broke...
