2) What have you learnt throughout the past 6 months in 2022? How long have you been investing? What’s your biggest key takeaway from the learnings in the stock market?

3) Looking forward to the next quarter of 2022, what’s your plan and strategy? What’s your expectation towards the stock market? Which sectors are you looking into and why? Share your thoughts here👇👇👇 https://www.investingnote.com/topics/5725#/all

Our First Business Trip To Malaysia!

Our First Business Trip To Malaysia!

No alternative text description for this image
KOL Gathering – We invited KOLs from Malaysia to have a gathering and networking session.

In 2020, we expanded our team and business in Malaysia. Since it was the beginning of the pandemic and our headquarters being in Singapore, we’ve only met most of our Malaysian team members virtually.

So, this is the first time both teams finally met in-person, after going through the many project developments and meetings over the last 2 years!

It was also a good opportunity to catch up with many of our Malaysian partners, prominent financial influencers and community members!

Key takeaways from the trip:

✅ Sincerity & groundwork are key pillars for building a sustainable community
✅ Understand the nuances of cultural differences – this increases communication chemistry
✅ Always find a good balance between work & fun!

Here’s a big thank you to our wonderful Malaysian teammates for hosting us for the week. Our team bonding activity at Genting was awesome!

p.s. everyone looked better in-person 😎

How Bad Were The Returns During The 16 US Recessions In The Past 100 Years?

How Bad Were The Returns During The 16 US Recessions In The Past 100 Years?

I posted in my Telegram group regarding a particular recession in the past that kind of reminds me a little of what we are currently going through.

And some members were asking if I would do a deep dive about it.

There is roughly nothing much to analyze as it is just some data but I thought I would present what I tabulated. I got to thank Sean Cheng from Dimensional for pointing me to the Dimensional article that provided a good summary of the 16 US recessions that happen since 1926.

This post was originally posted here. The writer is a veteran community member and blogger on InvestingNote, with a username known as @Kyith.

Here is the summary of the US recessions:

The details of all 16 US Recessions in the past

You can see when they started and end. On average, each recession lasted for 1 year with the longest being 3.6 years (Great depression).

For those in retirement planning, you would also notice that during the recessions, there is seldom deflation. This means that your real spending might not stay stagnant or decline during those periods.

Here are the Retirement Income Preferences of Financial Savvy Singaporeans [Survey Results]

Here are the Retirement Income Preferences of Financial Savvy Singaporeans [Survey Results]

A month ago, I requested whether you could help me do a retirement income survey, and you happily obliged.

Originally, I said that there will be 5 book winners but I decided to bump it up to 15 so in the next few weeks, I will link up with 15 of you who are the lucky winners of Money Wisdom: Simple Truths For Financial Wellness and Estate Planning Made Easy.

This post was originally posted here. The writer is a veteran community member and blogger on InvestingNote, with a username known as @Kyith.

As someone who paid attention to the financial independence, retire early (FIRE) space and a specialist whose day job is to craft & improve the solution in a wealth advisory firm, I wanted to find out the income preferences about you for sometime.

The you in this case, are the Singaporeans, PR and the expats living around the region who are more financially conscious. You would have more financial resources than the average Singaporeas but you are exposed to the importance of planning for your retirement (through Investment Moats any my peers). Therefore, you are also more aware of the different complications concerning planning for your retirement.

A total of 588 of you responded to my survey. While many of you would not win the books, I want to make the result of the survey as valuable of a gift that you have partly given yourself.

Each of us have different financial resources, difference in pace of retirement saving. We also have different perspectives about our desired retirement lifestyles, due to our money stories in the past.

Most of the other surveys are more bias towards try to craft a narrative that you have a retirement shortfall, or to scare you to planning for it early. Perhaps to call them and start planning.

In the questions that you have done, you would realize there is less focus on how you are going to accumulate that but more about what your previous money stories have lead you to the eventual income strategy choices.

In this survey, I hope that you may grow to understand that based on your income preferences, it will have profound impact on how your plan will turn out. In each of the question review, I will try my best to explain how your selection will affect your retirement income strategy.

Syfe Trade: A Brokerage For Everyone

Syfe Trade: A Brokerage For Everyone

Sometime around this time last year, I wrote an article on Syfe Investment Portfolio highlighting the Core Portfolio which provides investors with a balanced mix of equity, bond, and gold ETFs.

‌If you have bought them, you would fared pretty well above the market average at an annualized return of -8.1% for the past 1-year but up 5.5% for 3 years annualized and 5.6% for 5 years annualized.

Ascendas REIT vs. Mapletree Industrial Trust – Which is a Better Buy?

Ascendas REIT vs. Mapletree Industrial Trust – Which is a Better Buy?

I had a casual discussion with a friend yesterday where we talked about the performance of the various Singapore-listed REITs (or S-REITs for short) and 2 of the REITs we put side-by-side to evaluate are the 2 blue-chip industrial REITs in Ascendas REIT (SGX:A17U) and Mapletree Industrial Trust (SGX:ME8U) – where both of them have a similar property profile (in that they invest in industrial and data centre properties.)

This post was originally posted here. The writer, Lim Jun Yuan is a veteran community member and blogger on InvestingNote, with a username known as @ljunyuan and has close to 2,000 followers.

So, between the 2 REITs, which is a better one in terms of its performances, and also at the time of writing, which is currently the “cheaper” one? Let us have a look at both REITs’ performance over the last 11 years to find out:

Market Capitalisation (Market Cap)

At the time of writing of this post, Ascendas REIT has market cap of S$11.586bn, while Mapletree Industrial Trust has a market cap of S$6.693bn.

Verdict: Ascendas REIT is clearly the winner here with a market cap that’s close to double of that of Mapletree Industrial Trust.
