I will be posting a short summary of Global Outlook to monitor the market movements. […]
Since graduation, my priority for my finances is on investing my savings aggressively to take advantage of compound interest. I made a couple of mistakes and learnt to be wiser/more careful in my investing approach. I invested in Syfe at an absolutely bad timing (Feb 2020) so I watched my portfolio take a U-shaped turn throughout the years. First post on my Syfe portfolio was uploaded here.
When it comes to increasing my income, there's just this much that could be done until the limit is reached. But I have more leeway to lower my expenses. Blog updates: First 100K, Next 100K
The promotions from credit card signs up helped me to lower my expenses tremendously. I had received Apple Ipad, Ninja Foodi, Vouchers, Dyson Fan, Cash via pay now so far.

My Syfe portfolio
Currently, I have 2 portfolios with Syfe (blended expense rate is at 0.5%) . For Singapore Reits (Property purse), I set the dividends to be re-invested automatically.
Syfe Reit+ portfolio
You can invest in Singapore's best REITs in 1 portfolio via Syfe. This tracks the iEdge S-REIT Leaders Index with all its constituents, weights and corporate actions. It is a narrow, tradable, adjusted free-float market capitalisation weighted index that measures the performance of the most liquid real estate investment trusts in Singapore in SGD.
While the iEdge S-REIT Leaders index holds 27 REIT constituents, REIT+ is an optimized portfolio of 20 REITs.
I don't buy individual REITs due to the minimum lot size. It's good that Syfe REIT+ has no minimum investment amount and no brokerage charges as well. You can dollar cost average into Syfe REIT+ to build up your REIT holdings monthly
Index breakdown by REIT type: Industrial and warehouse equity reits (31%), Office equity reits (26%), Retail equity reits (19%)
