This session is organised in partnership with NUS School of Continuing and Lifelong Education (SCALE).
In 2021, the average life expectancy in Singapore is 83 years. How have you been investing to provide for yourself and your family in view of our increasing longevity?
This webinar will discuss how we can leverage data and technology to make better investments decisions, as well as how to build and manage real estate wealth for the long term, and the pitfalls to avoid.
Building and Managing Real Estate Wealth
Real estate is an integral part of wealth for Singapore. Real estate assets comprise more than 40% of total household wealth in Singapore (MAS, 2020). Real estate loans have risen consistently to $207 bn as of end 2020, accounting for 41.5% of Singapore’s GDP. Given that real estate is such a large part of household wealth, how can one build and manage real estate wealth? What are the principles for sustainable long term investment in real estate? What are some pitfalls to avoid?

Investing with Data & Technology
The enormous rise in data and technology has transformed the way we make decisions. The complexities across financial markets and instruments have increased, however, when it comes to retail investing, investors still use the same old techniques. The current scenario demands a change in investing behaviour for gaining better returns and planning for a safe future. This talk will cover the principles of investing leveraging data and technology that can lead to better decision making.
