How Ready are You to Retire? (Guest Post)

How Ready are You to Retire? (Guest Post)

This week is pretty much drained. So I don’t have any bandwidth to explore things that are new. Weekends is probably to catch some breath.

One of my reader that I met up with some time ago asked me these 2 deeper question about retirement:

1.What amount of principal will you feel comfortable to quit the job & just collect investment dividends, with a not-too-spendthrift lifestyle?

2.How much to “reserve” for medical costs?

I thought it is easier to tackle in this week that requires some decompression.

Trading For Alpha: The Active Traders’ Rally- an event for traders by traders

Trading For Alpha: The Active Traders’ Rally- an event for traders by traders

“Alpha” (the Greek letter α) is a term used in investing to describe a strategy’s ability to beat the market, or having an “edge.”

Alpha is a measure of performance, indicating when a strategy, trader, or portfolio manager has managed to beat the market return over some period. As Alpha is the active return on an investment, it is also often referred to as “excess return” .

If you’re a trader, you probably already know this.

Now, we’ve put together a band of diversified traders who are extremely active in the markets, and are Alpha-hunters by profession.

How to Get Rich (Realistically) and Stay Wealthy (Guest Post)

How to Get Rich (Realistically) and Stay Wealthy (Guest Post)

The majority of the rich who got really wealthy took calculated risks. They also had the foresight to see things that a lot of us would not be able to see.

Rich people surround themselves with people more competent then them in areas they are not good at.

Most of the time, the wealthy was also able to execute their plans very well. You will also find them having the ability listen to others when it is time to listen. But be steadfast when they needed to.

I got very little of these traits.

And maybe that is why I am not rich (by today’s much higher standards). I worked in a firm where we steward our client’s wealth carefully, so I know where I stand in the spectrum of people who are rich and poor.

But I do think that I have enough wealth for myself though. Enough for me to have a conversation with you on this topic.

Is it endowment, annuity, universal life, bonds, equities, physical properties, land banking, hedge funds, etc. Physical properties is one of the most favorite asset classes when come to investing in Singapore. However, there are some disadvantages on physical properties investing when we are entering into our retirement age.
