  • 4 Reasons You Need to Be Financially Prudent Despite a Steady Paycheck
    On the surface, Singaporeans don’t look like glass-is-half-full, optimistic rays of sunshine. We’ve gained a reputation for being kiasee worriers who always anticipate the worst. But is that reputation really deserved? I don’t think so. In fact, when it comes to spending money and lifestyle-upgrading, Singaporeans can sometimes be stupidly optimistic. It’s not uncommon for high-earning PMETs to live from paycheck to paycheck because they want to live the high life, and they think they’ll always be able to rely on their hefty salaries to keep going. Singaporeans are failing miserably at preparing for retirement, while young Singaporeans prefer to ... read more

  • Budgeting comes second – and other habits of the rich
    Everyone’s path to wealth is a little bit different. Usain Bolt can sprint his way to fame and fortune, but J.K. Rowling can’t. Then again, Ms. Rowling can make millions off a novel, whereas Richard Branson can’t. But Mr. Branson can make millions in business, which…you get the idea. The “secret sauce” is a little different for everybody. But the good news is, there are some general lessons you can take away: 1. Budgeting comes second We’ve all been told that budgeting is important, and that’s true. Spend within your means, and save 20 per cent of your ... read more

  • Turtle Tip : How To Pay Only $18 Per Trade
    Boy : “You mean you didn’t know?”Girl : … Yes, it was one of those days when a normal conversation erupted into a WTF moment. Luckily, not at my expense though. StanChart’s implementation of the $10 minimum commission has come and gone by. Excluding the StanChart option, retail investors generally (but not always) pay $25 in brokerage fee per trade. But, you don’t have to. I thought it was an open secret and common knowledge. I was wrong to assume.
