Many years ago, a foreigner made a joke about our army in front of me. He said our army is like boy scouts, only good for marching during National Day Parade because unlike other armies, we have never experience going into wars. Of course, being still an NSman, I was offended. I told him firmly…
Take the stress and ambiguity out of investment planning.
Forget the dubious art of stock picking and the unreliable use of a yield curve to predict the next stock market downturn.

Our investment approach is never to maximize returns by just timing the market. Such an approach, typically adopted by active funds, always attempts to beat the market, making it highly unpredictable and difficult to achieve on a consistent basis. Rather, we focus on the long-term returns of assets and believe in compounding returns by staying invested and continuing to invest. We prefer to ride the volatilities of the market rather than risk making permanent losses to our capital.
While our investment objective is to deliver an annualized target return from your investments, we control the risk level of your portfolios by diversifying across asset classes and markets, as well as investing mainly in index funds, which focus on getting the average returns of the market and are therefore less risky and better able to deliver more consistent returns. Index funds are also less costly, minimizing leakage from your returns.
On a day-to-day basis we are continuously monitoring market developments as well the performance of the portfolios. When the use of active funds are necessary, we periodically conduct valuations and ranking of the funds in our portfolios and arrange meetings with the fund managers to find out more about their performance and strategies going forward. All this information helps us to ascertain the need to make changes to our portfolios. Top Singapore Investment Manager.
