Upcoming Personal Finance Events In Singapore You Should Attend In 2019

Save the dates.

 

Increasingly, we are able to learn important and useful personal finance information by just spending time online – either reading personal finance websites, such as the one you’re currently on, watching explainer videos, attending webinars, downloading e-books and many other ways.

This doesn’t mean there is no value to attending physical events, where you get to listen to the speaker explain his thought process, engage in Q&A sessions the specialist and interact with other like-minded participants.

On the back of our first event (which we’re happy to announce is sold out!), In The Footsteps Of Masters: Going Beyond #myfirsttrade, we thought of compiling a list of personal finance events that would be really beneficial to those who want to learn more.

# 1 ETFestival 2019

Organised By: Fundsupermart (FSM)
Date: 4 May 2019 (Saturday)
Time: 10am to 5pm
Venue: Capitol Theatre (17 Stamford Road, Singapore 178907)

Targeted at investors who want to build their investment portfolio through exchange traded funds (ETFs), this event allows investors to hear from the company’s analysts, as well as industry investment specialists from Nikko Asset Management, State Street Global Advisors and S&P Dow Jones Indices.

In a nutshell, ETFs are funds that are listed on the stock exchange. They enable investors to diversify their portfolio across numerous regions and sectors and provide a high level of liquidity, while saving on cost. Even investors who are at the beginner level or just starting out can leverage on ETF investments to build a stable and strong investment portfolio.

If you want to find out more, you should attend this event to gain deeper insights at this ETF-centric event. To help you get started, you can also open an FSMOne account, ask questions at the panel discussion and take part in lucky draws that credit funds to your investment account!

For those of you who don’t already know what REITs are, they are Real Estate Investment Trusts, and comprise properties in Singapore (and anywhere in the world). By investing in REITs, you are essentially the property owner, and you can expect to receive regular “rental” via distributions that are paid out by the REITs.
