Why I Believe Singapore Exchange Limited Can Continue to Grow
Singapore Exchange Limited (SGX: S68), or SGX, is Singapore’s sole stock exchange. It offers a platform for trading securities such as equities, fixed income, and derivatives. SGX also offers services such as market connectivity and assists companies in raising capital through initial public offerings (IPOs). Since Singapore is a small market, many investors may feel that growth is limited for SGX. The era of the “S-Chips” (i.e., Chinese companies that came over to IPO in Singapore) is over, the bubble burst thanks to numerous cases of fraud and poor governance, while many companies have been delisted from SGX due to poor interest and market liquidity. These events all seem to point to declining interest in securities trading, which negatively affects SGX’s growth prospects. Howev

Non-Bank Stock Brokerages: Lim & Tan Securities, Phillip Securities and FSMOne – Here’s What You Need To Know About Investing Through Them
To start investing in Singapore, we typically need two types of accounts – a Central Depository (CDP) account and a stock brokerage account. The CDP account is to hold our investments, be it stocks, REITs, ETFs, bonds or other types of listed securities on the Singapore Exchange (SGX). Before we start holding the investments in our CDP account, we need to buy them. This is what our stock brokerage account does for us. Majority of the stock brokerages in Singapore also offer custodian accounts, and while this means the stocks we buy are held with the brokerage firm, they also maintain a sub-account with CDP on our behalf.

Investment Guide: You Have S$1,000. Now Where Do You Invest It?
Here’s the scenario: You have S$1,000. You want to invest it somewhere, but you’re not sure what you can do with such a small amount. Assuming you have paid off any high-interest debts and have built an emergency fund, there are actually a lot of ways you can make that S$1,000 work for you. Here’s how to invest S$1,000 according to your risk level: 1. Bonds If you’re looking for somewhere safe to park your cash in, consider investing in bonds. Bonds are debt securities, which means that they represent loans to governments or companies who are looking to raise money to fund operations. Some bonds pay out a fixed rate of interest (called ‘coupons’) at regular intervals. When the bond matures, the issuer has to pay the principal amount of the bond (also known as ‘face’ or

CDP Account VS Custodian Account VS Escrow Account: What Are The Differences?
When we save money, we put it in the bank. This is because it is 1) more convenient to access our funds than putting it in one place, 2) safer than leaving it at home, and 3) in hopes we may get a certain interest return. If we think about it, we are entrusting the bank with our money. However, we all know that we shouldn’t just save our money, we should also invest it, to beat inflation and grow our retirement nest egg. When we invest, we don’t actually hold the securities or assets physically. Similar to entrusting the bank with our money (regardless of where we earn or receive it from), we entrust a financial body or institution to hold our investments (regardless of which broker or platform we invest with). Even though we may invest in stocks via our brokerage firm, embark on a mon

4 Stocks This Week (REIT Acquisitions) 31 May 2019 – Frasers Centrepoint; Sasseur REIT; Manulife US REIT; EC World REIT
With more than 40 real estate investment trusts (REITs) and property trusts, the Singapore Exchange (SGX) is a haven for those who are looking to invest in real estates. This makes sense as many Singapore investors have a penchant for investing in properties, both locally and overseas. REITs are a great way to get started on investing in properties. Unlike the purchase of physical properties, a REIT investor only needs to make an outlay of a few thousand dollars, as opposed to hundreds of thousands of dollars. In addition, investors will enjoy greater diversification as each REIT they invest in already own multiple properties. Also, investors do not have to worry about the hassle of managing the properties since the REITs manager will already be managing the assets for them. Read Also: In

Best World unleashed terror with stunning revelation
What a revelation! On 13 May 2019, after a probe by SGX RegCo, Best World finally revealed that Koh Kim Chuan, the legal representative and shareholder of Changsha Best, is the brother-in-law of the Group’s CEO and Managing Director.  Currently, Best World shares are suspended from trading and hapless investors are once again left high and dry. In recent years, corporate governance issues had dogged numerous SGX-listed companies like Yuzoo, Noble Group, Midas and the likes. Even blue chips like Keppel Corporation are also not spared (Keppel was fined a whopping $560 million by US authorities in 2018 over corruption scandal). Against this backdrop, I am not surprised if Best World turns out to be yet another falling knife. It seems to be disaster after disaster for SGX-listed companies,

Real Estate Investment Trust vs Physical Properties, Which Suits You?
Thinking about investing in real estate? Buying physical properties isn’t the only way to go about it these days. In recent years, real estate investment trusts (REITs) have emerged as a popular way to dip into the real estate market without directly buying a property. If you’ve been considering investing in REITs, here’s what you need to know about them, and how they’re different from investing in physical properties. What is a REIT? A REIT is like a unit trust fund, in that it pools many people’s money to hold a group of investments. However, instead of investing in stocks and bonds like unit trust funds do, REITs invest in property. You can buy and sell REITs on the Singapore Exchange (SGX), just like stocks. REITs are therefore a way to invest in real estate without having

This week, we look at how investors in Singapore can get US REIT exposure with four REITs and business trusts that are listed here. Since Manulife US REIT listed in Singapore in May 2016, offering the first pure-play US REIT exposure for investors here, there have been two other such listings – Keppel-KBS US REIT in November 2017 and, more recently, ARA US Hospitality REIT, in May 2019. These REIT and business trust listings coincide with the positive economic growth and outlook in the US in the past few years.

Upcoming Personal Finance Events In Singapore You Should Attend In 2019
Increasingly, we are able to learn important and useful personal finance information by just spending time online – either reading personal finance websites, such as the one you’re currently on, watching explainer videos, attending webinars, downloading e-books and many other ways. This doesn’t mean there is no value to attending physical events, where you get to listen to the speaker explain his thought process, engage in Q&A sessions the specialist and interact with other like-minded participants. On the back of our first event (which we’re happy to announce is sold out!), In The Footsteps Of Masters: Going Beyond #myfirsttrade, we thought of compiling a list of personal finance events that would be really beneficial to those who want to learn more. # 1 ETFestival 2019 Organ

A new report by corporate governance advocate Mak Yuen Teen purports to help investors spot early signs of trouble, using a model that analyses a company’s business model and its key events and transactions.

SI Research: Fuel Your Returns With Union Gas Holdings
On the lookout for stable businesses whose products and services are always in demand, Union Gas Holdings (Union Gas) is one such company that caught our attention. Listed on the Singapore Exchange a couple of years back in July 2017 at $0.25 a share, Union Gas is a leading supplier of bottled Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) cylinders to more than 180,000 domestic households in Singapore.
