The Global Expatriate’s Guide To Investing Singapore Book Launches


I’ll be having two book launch events in Singapore during the next week.

  1. Saturday, January 17th, I’ll be speaking at Kinokunyia between 2pm and 3pm.
  2. Wednesday, January 21st, I’ll be speaking between 6:15 and 8:30 at Prudential Tower, Level 23, 30 Cecil Street. You can register for this talk here.

In case you are curious, Wednesday’s location will be at the firm responsible for Veracity Corporate Pensions.  I wrote about them in this article:

    Hi Andrew,

    Just finished reading “Global Expat’s Guide”. An excellent reference indeed. Would appreciate if you could kindly provide further clarification to the following: – On pg 285, Table 22.2 outlines the various bonds & stock ETFs recommended for Asian Expats. Based on your guideline throughout the book, it is advisable for us to have a composition of home country (bond & stock) index. Am I right to presume that as a Singapore PR, I should subscribe to ABF Singapore Bond Index Fund & SPDR Straits Times Index?

    How about the part on global stock index? Any recommendations and should I purchase the global index through HK or Canadian Exchange? Apart from DBS Vickers, any other local brokerage firms offering access to Canadian markets?

    Hope you can shed some light on the above concerns. Again, thanks for the generous knowledge sharing. May God bless you & your loved ones. Look forward to the autograph session at Kino tomorrow.
    Best regards,

    Hi Andrew,

    Read your Millionaire Teacher book and was interested to start my first investment on the ETF market in Singapore. However when I study the price and volume for both ABF Singapore Bone Index and SPDR Straits Time Index, the price doesn’t change much and volume was extremely low in transaction. Please correct me if I’m wrong, the buy and sell ability will depend on demand and supply as well. Thank you very much on taking your time for reply and looking forward to it.

    • Chris,

      If you are Singaporean, don’t bother with the bond index. Your CPF is much like a bond. Set a limit order when buying the Singapore stock index, just a penny or two about the ask price.
