Editor’s Note: Although the Ebook was first published in 2016, we think it is still very relevant today. You will find plenty of useful information and nuggets of wisdom contributed by 13 local personal finance and investment bloggers, each sharing their own perspective of how they approach investing. This is unlike what you will normally find from local newspaper which at times can provide biased information due to vested interest.
A brand new year and a brand new article on BigFatPurse.com (formally known as), the first in 2016.
A group of financial bloggers, including yours truly, have put together an ebook for you. We have released it now and it is free for download, but before I give you the link to download, allow me to give you some details about the ebook.
The title of the ebook is Investing Your First $20,000, and it is targeted at budding DIY investors who want to know how to invest in Singapore with little money.
The idea came about as a response to The Straits Times article in Jul 2015, where it had a slant towards Unit Trusts. I did a rebuttal article but I felt it wasn’t complete since it was only my point of view. Getting the inputs from various bloggers and compile them into this ebook would provide the diversity in thoughts and multiple viewpoints about the same matter.
We hope you would be able to find something that suits your situation and context.
I would like to thank the bloggers for agreeing to this project and willingly shared a lot of their personal experience and knowledge without asking anything in return.
