I’ve been considering to invest in either Stashaway’s 22% portfolio which is mostly made up of stocks etf or Syfe’s 100% REITS portfolio. If it were you, what’s the percentages you will allocate to each portfolio? 50-50?
Hi there! Syfe's 100% REIT portfolio isn't a REIT ETF. Instead, your funds are invested in the individual REITs held by the portfolio. With Phase 2 of Singapore's circuit breaker starting, Singapore REITs are on the road to recovery. If you believe in the long-term potential of S-REITs, the 100% REIT portfolio is a good option to start now. Unlike REIT ETFs on the market, there are no brokerage fees each time you invest in Syfe's REIT portfolio. This makes it ideal for investors looking to accumulate their REIT assets month by month.
After some experience you may want to invest your money autonomously without S or S.
with a cheap online broker you can manage it all by yourself.
for the REITs I would choice Lion-Phillip S-REIT ETF, 20% allocation
the 80% rest into U.S. ETFs
22% portfolio is basically investing in international equities and a mixture of bonds and there is a foreign exchange risk.
100% REITs will be affected by covid and will definitely have lower returns than previous years.
Both are volatile and poses risk. Make sure you’re ready to lose all your invested funds.
I personally do 50-50.
