Investing in the Lion-OCBC Securities Hang Seng Tech ETF (guest post)

Investing in the Lion-OCBC Securities Hang Seng Tech ETF (guest post)

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly disrupted both working practices and life in general and many of us have been adjusting to this new working world and lifestyle. We have gotten used to working from home for extended periods of time and are now relying on digital ways to complete our daily errands and tasks.

Traditional businesses were impacted as well and many companies took this opportunity to pivot their operations and automate processes as strategies were redefined to meet the increasing need for a digital transformation.

Many of the technology companies that we were familiar with come from the United States, particularly Silicon Valley in the past twenty years. However, in recent years, the Chinese have also increased their technological research and absorption and have strengthened their digital presence globally.

Investing Workshop: Basics of ETF Investing & Constructing an ETF Portfolio

Investing Workshop: Basics of ETF Investing & Constructing an ETF Portfolio

What is an ETF?

An exchange-traded fund (ETF) is a type of security that involves a collection of securities—such as stocks—that often tracks an underlying index, although they can invest in any number of industry sectors or use various strategies.

To those unfamiliar, investing in ETFs can seem complicated and confusing. But an ETF is a marketable security, you can buy and sell them through the stock market just like an ordinary share.

Often touted as a low-cost and efficient way to get instant diversification, ETFs have been increasingly popular. Some well-known ETFs like the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY), which tracks the S&P 500 Index, gave a return of more than 70% in just 5 years.

Investment guru Warren Buffett himself has also specifically recommended ETFs as a way to boost retirement savings.
