“Aim to know one or two stocks really well, then trade them!”


Emil Teo

 

Executive Director, Taste of Tradition
“Never invest in businesses you don’t fully understand. Even when you think you understand it, there’s always more to learn and understand.”


Belinda Chua

Managing Director, Flower Diamond Boutique
“Only invest in what you understand and do so at the right price.”


Grace Yeh

  

Private Investor
“I’ve always followed this advice from American economist Harry Markowitz: don’t put all your eggs in one basket. It means one should diversify and have a selection of assets when investing, in order to achieve the best results.”


Victor Ow

 

Chairman and CEO, Clydesbuilt Group
“This advice has served me well: Save money and put it into properties in Singapore. Don’t buy ‘affordable’, nor something you can’t afford. In buying property, go for location and think long-term.”


Andre Lam

“I’ve not always invested wisely, but I bear in mind what my parents always told me: ‘Never invest into what you can’t afford’.”
