Change them to SGD or USD. AUD is weakening and you will need to achieve a higher expected return to reduce the loss/risks from FX. even if you frequent Aus, it will be better to change them at a better rates as it seems that AUD is struggling to hold at it's current pricing

Hi anon, If you are fairly certain of your ability to generate returns for your parents, then by all means, go ahead. If not, it might be better to leave the investments to others. If money is lost, they most likely won't blame you as you are their child, but it will sour things, and you will also feel guilt ridden, which is the last thing you want. If you were to invest their monies, make sure it is not a big amount first. Defiintely don't invest their entire live savings. At their age, they should not be taking undue risk. Perhaps up to 20% of their savings can be placed in defensive equities that generate good dividends. I have actually done that myself, helping my mom to get some dividend stocks, which I myself hold. Mom is very happy when she gets the dividend twice a year. It was a bit hard at the start since she's never invested, so she was very very skeptical about the whole idea. However, as her son, I personally guaranteed her capital (she wasn't going to put too much anyway) so that extra level of guarantee from me was sufficient to convince her to start.

Yupp, its real time! The pros is that you are able to monitor what the exchange rate is for each particular counter rather than a particular lumpsum of money for other brokers. But I don't think many take into a large account Forex rates when executing trades

Time in the market is better than timing the market. If you are sure of your investment objective and timeframe, and have also checked off all other major personal finance essentials (e.g. clearing bad debt, setting aside emergency fund), then there is no better time than now. On investments, returns are never guaranteed, but your costs are. Always seek to minimise costs. Hope this helps :)

Hi, I use stashaway as well. And I find the interface and the structure of the app so easy to use as compared to the other apps. In terms of other robo advisor, most of them do invest in the same types of ETFs. Hence should be rather similar. If you want a more diversified portfolio, you can try and open a brokerage acc like POEM. It allows you to choose and invest in different kinds of ETFs all over the world. They have over 3000 funds for you to choose from. https://www.poems.com.sg/products/etf/ Good luck Nixon

Yes, SGX is good. The banks/platforms do offer some good and free short classes about investing occasionally such as Young Investors Programme (OCBC). Worth a check out as well.

If you receive the dividends as cash and do not reinvest, then it does not compound. If you do, then it does. For example, IWDA actually auto reinvests your dividends for you. Counters such as STI ETF do not. But you would have to manually reinvest your dividends by buying more of the stock (more fees btw). The appeal of ETFs would be to give you a basket of top stocks (subjective) just by buying a single stock. It works for individuals who are looking for a "one-stop diversified solution for the long term". That said, true compounding lies in a business who is growing their business every single year - the compounding will reflect in their share price!

I guess the difference is that warrants have a longer duration than options. With low liquidity and volatility in SG markets paired with the short time frame of options, I think it would be tougher to create any traction for it as well. Also, not taking into account fees for short term options trade! But I honestly think those invested in SG markets, are much better to off to focus on the fundamentals of buying a strong business and holding it on for long term, rather than trade out trading instruments/deriavatives.

From our finance classes, the answer is to take the coupon rate of the 10 year bond. This is because of the idea we should be adopting something that is close to risk free. The market yield is not a good "close to risk free" instrument

Most of their times are used to do sales related materials/admin works. They have a team of risk analyst and market analyst to assist them in picking/suggesting the direction and portfolio to manage.
