I have reached my 50th post since I started the blog early in January 2020.
Back then, I could not have imagined how 2020 would have turned out.
Britain officially left the EU, the COVID-19 pandemic, the market crash in March, the end of the longest-running bull market in history, the looming recession, racial riots in the US etc.
Indeed an eventful year and we are only halfway through it.
It is even more critical now, in difficult times, that we listen to sound financial advice and act prudently.
Plans for this blog
First of all, I wanted to introduce the new theme and a new home page layout.
Moving forward, I will start publishing a new post every Tuesday, and I will start a weekly newsletter every Friday. So, be sure to subscribe.
Most of all, I want to thank you all for reading and following this blog.
Please feel free to comment or suggest any new topics you might want to read, and I can research it and share it with all of you.
Here are some articles I would like to highlight:
Or maybe I can convince you to join the Fama camp – markets are efficient. Therefore you should invest passively.
- Getting Into Financial Shape For 2020 – my very first post. It highlights the importance of saving and investing consistently.
- Questions To Ask Before Retiring Early – early retirement might not be your cup of tea. Here are some questions to ask yourself.
- 5 Reasons Not To Start Investing – The best time to start investing is ten years ago. The second best time is now. How often have you heard this phrase? Do not be pressured to start investing when you are not ready.
- What Is Your Recession Plan? – I know we are already in the midst of one of the worst recessions (or even a depression). It is still not too late to have a recession plan.
- If you don’t believe in the efficient market hypothesis, maybe my articles on irrational behaviour might be of interest.
- When Aiming For Average Is Better: Passive Investing – passive investing
- And if passive investing is your cup of tea, you should check out Boglehead lazy portfolios. Here are three flavours of implementing them in a Singaporean context:
- The Bogleheads 3-Fund Portfolio for Singapore Firewalkers by firepathlion
- Establishing Bogleheads 3-Fund Portfolio In Singapore by turtleinvestor
- The Bogleheads Three-Fund Portfolio for Singaporeans – from me
- Investing from Singapore – Bogleheads
- 8 Lazy ETF Portfolios – if you are not satisfied with a simple lazy portfolio, here are eight more from the oblivious investor. They are US-centric portfolios though. If you want a Singapore version, I can write about it, maybe.
- A Three Factor ETF Portfolio – if you want to throw in some factors into your portfolio.
