12 things I learned from the 2018 SGX AGM
Singapore Exchange (SGX) is an equities, fixed income, derivatives, commodities, and foreign currency exchange.

Buying An Overseas Property – Is It Ever Worth Your Money?
When it comes to investing in foreign properties, DollarsAndSense usually advocates a cautious approach. This is because investors face asymmetric information – with much of the information in the hands of the developers while investors don’t know much about the state of the local rental market, the location of the property or the local rules and regulations Nevertheless, this hasn’t stopped property investors from Singapore from ploughing over $37.2 billion in overseas properties in 2017.

How to Find Great Dividend Stocks While Relaxing by the Coast
When you come across a dividend idea that is summarised in a single tweet, you know that it does not come much simpler than this. Eddy Elfenbein, an investment writer and analyst, has been publishing his “buy list” on his Crossing Wall Street blog since 2006. What’s interesting is that his list of investments has beaten the US-based S&P 500 by observing a simple formula: buying outstanding companies and holding for long periods of time. Over the last 12 years, the total returns of his buy list was 230% versus the S&P 500’s comparable returns of 176%.
