I just signed up with FSMone. Should I use a regular saving plans on the following Items?

  • SPDR STI ETF (Singapore)

  • Vanguard S&P 500

  • O’Shares Global Internet Giants

  • Vanguard Total Chinese Index ETF

I’m hoping to get diversification therefore investing into Singapore, US, digital economies and China. My concern is I’ve seen that the return for the last 3 portfolio has been seeing increase returns and with digital economies (obviously) reaching a share price it has never reached before. Would it still make sense for me to invest in them? What is the expected trajectory? Thx!

Over the long long long term, the US stock market value has kept increasing, based on history. Of course no one knows for sure what will happen in future.

Look at it in another way, if you don’t start and invest now, where would you put your money then? Will that offer you the potential to increase your money and by how much? Risk and return are part of the same equation.

Then consider the future that we may find ourselves in maybe 5-10 years time. Will the world be less digital than now? Will US and China still be the two of the biggest economies in the world? Will Singapore continue to exist and prosper? Short term challenges still exist but the market is always forward looking.

So it really depends on your view and how you want to position yourself for the future. “Skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been.”
