I sometimes have fantasies of committing suicide. Often while working on excel.
A recent report titled ‘suicides hit all-time highs in Singapore’ first broke on the AFP, and subsequently got picked up by Bangkok Post, Yahoo! News Singapore, and even Fox news. With all this attention, I wouldn’t fault ...

I would have written this a long time ago, if my motivation wasn’t so readily eroded by distractions and general inertia. Say you have about S$100,000 to invest, and in 10 years, you want to grow it to S$1,000,000. The ac...

Yes, I did this. None of the photos belong to me. I’m planning to be at Hong Lim Park from 4pm today. It’s a three hour investment, which I’d much rather spend in many other ways, so I guess I better pen down for posterity, ...

Introduction
I have been building a reputation in the unit trust industry in Singapore since 2008. 

Currently taking it one day at a time. 

At Citywire.com, I covered funds and fund managers internationally.

At Fundsupermart.com, I produced fund investment articles and interview fund managers, among other things. 

I love all things social media, investing, and Youtube.
