Okay, I have to admit, the horse in a suit pic doesn’t really have much to do with this post. But it was really amusing so I stuck it there anyway.
What this post is about though, is the Financial Horse Complete Guide to Investing for Singapore Investors that launched last weekend on National Day.
And as a way to give back to all loyal readers of Financial Horse, there was an early bird promo that cut the usual price from USD299 to USD199. The promo ends this Sunday, and I probably won’t be doing anything similar any time soon, so if you’re a long time reader of Financial Horse, and you’re keen to sign up for the course, be sure to do it by this weekend!
Read on for a description of what the FH Course is intended to achieve! I genuinely poured everything I know about investing into this course, and I think it’s the best investing course out there today, so do check it out!
The most common question I get on this site is: “I am x years old. I have y dollars in the bank. How do I invest my money?”
After answering countless reader questions and Ask FH questions, it started becoming obvious to me that the response to all these questions were all broadly similar. There was an underlying set of considerations and framework that applied to investing for Singaporeans, that could be used to address all these queries. And I knew that I had to share this framework with readers in a way that was more efficient than replying to them individually.
But this framework was more than could be imparted in a simple paragraph, or even a 2000 word article.
So I’ve spent the last 9 months of my life compiling everything I know about investing into a set of videos, articles, exercises, and materials. It is the Complete Guide to Investing for Singapore Investors. And it’s all available to you today.
What is the Complete Guide to Investing for Singapore Investors – I’ve spent the last 9 months of my life compiling everything I know about investing into a set of videos, articles, exercises, and materials. Unlike other courses which only touch on REITs/Dividend stocks, the Complete Guide to Investing for Singaporeans gives you everything you need to know as an Investor in Singapore – from asset allocation, understanding the market cycle, Stocks, REITs, bonds, ETFs, Property, CPF, tax planning to building a complete portfolio as a Singaporean investor.
Asset allocation will make or break your returns – I’m a huge believer in asset allocation. To build this course, I re-thought my entire approach towards asset allocation for Singaporean investors. I built a complete framework from the ground up to think about your net worth as a Singaporean, inclusive of CPF, property (residential + investment), bonds, stocks, REITs. This is the same approach I adopt towards conceptualising my own net worth. In fact, I would even go so far to say that the Asset Allocation module itself is probably worth the entire course fee.
What is the course structure? The course consists of 10 modules as follows:
Module 1: Objectives and Goal Setting
Module 2: The Importance of Asset Allocation
Module 3: Understanding the Market Cycle
Module 4: REITs
Module 5: Property Investing for Individuals
Module 6: Shares
Module 7: ETFs
Module 8: Bonds & Fixed Income
Module 9: CPF & Tax Planning
Module 10: Putting it all together: Sample Portfolios
Think of this as a shortcut, to jumpstart your learning and start from a much higher base than your peers – Can you learn everything in this course by yourself? Absolutely, most of this can be learned through books, classes, and painful trial and error. But ask yourself, how long would it take for you to build up such a knowledge?
In this course, I’ve taken everything I know about investing, what I learnt from books, courses, academic journals, interviews, speaking to people, and all my experience in the financial markets over the past 10 years, and condensed it into this course. Think of this as a way to shortcut years of your learning, and immediately start on a much higher base than your peers.
It took me 10 years to build up the knowledge I have today. Even if you can do it in a quarter of the time I took, that’s still 2.5 years. And in investing, 2.5 years can translate into a lot of money lost, and lost opportunities.
If I had been offered such a course 10 years ago when I began my investing journey, I absolutely would have jumped at the chance.
Who should take the course?
(1) New to investing: Whether you are in NS, university or just started work, the course will help you start your investment journey the right way.
(2) Established Investors: For investors who have dabbled in investing and want to finetune their portfolio, the course will reframe your asset allocation to maximize returns, with tips and insights from my own investing strategies.
(3) Investors thinking of retirement: Protect your nest egg and make it grow for you, safely and confidently through retirement.
299USD is nothing compared to the amounts you’re investing over a lifetime – Think about it this way – the first stock I bought I invested 2000 USD, and I lost 80% of that money. That’s 1600 USD.
As a beginner investor, you’re bound to make mistakes. If this 299 USD can help you avoid a 50% loss on a 2000 USD investment, it’s paid for itself more than 3 times over. Think about how much you’re investing in the markets over a lifetime, and how much you can improve with a strong foundation.
If you invest S$20,000 a year from 25 to 65, The difference between 5% a year and 7% a year over a 40 year investing period (25 to 65) is $2.5 million vs $4.2 million. That’s a whopping 68% difference, or S$1.7 million.
The course fee is not intended to paywall information. All proceeds go into the running of this site, and allows me to create more amazing, free content for readers in the form of my weekly articles. If you can’t afford the course fee but genuinely want to learn, drop me a note and I will see what I can do help you.
It’s everything I know about investing – It’s as complete a guide to investing I can think of, and I’ve taken 9 months to record everything that I know about investing
If you learnt nothing at all, I will refund the course fee – And if you sat through the course, did all the exercises, and still found that you learnt absolutely nothing new, drop me a note within 21 days of purchase, and I will process a refund.
