I’m on the road this week, so it’s a quick weekly round up from me today. Ray Dalio’s book (link 1) is absolutely the best read this week. So if you’ve got some down time this weekend, do check it out.
Ray Dalio has written an amazing book that describes every single debt cycle known to man. It’s a fantastic template for understanding how credit cycles work, and how this impacts the equity markets.
You can download it for free off his website, but I’ve uploaded a copy on the Facebook Group for those who are unable to sign up. If you have the time, this is well worth your time.
This isn’t strictly an investing article, but still a really good read. A lot of people want the CEO job, but aren’t prepared to work the long hours and do the schmoozing. Or the hot bod but not the gym time. So ask yourself, how much are you prepared to suffer, to achieve your dreams?
Nice read on the advice from top CEOs in Singapore. I really like the one from the courts guy. 😉
It’s quite a technical piece, but it offers a fantastic explanation of why the feds had to resort to QE, and why taking it away may not necessarily crash the market. If you’ve read Ray Dalio’s book that I shared previously, you’ll find that this explanation ties in with the framework set out by Dalio on credit cycles.
Taking a look at how different asset allocations from “financial gurus” performed since 2005. The results are actually really interesting, but I can’t quite figure out why. Anyone care to point out the key takeaway from this?

This 2nd acquisition follows their recent one in July 2018, where the Manager announced its first foray into the United Kingdom (UK) with the acquisition comprising a portfolio of 12 freehold logistics properties for an agreed portfolio value of £207.27 million (S$373.15 million8). So in just 3mths, from zero to now they have 38, more than what they have in Australia(35)
Seems like a big vote of confidence for UK post Brexit. Are they expanding too fast too soon and taking a risk there with the Brexit uncertainty still being played out?
