Robo-Advisor StashAway Gets S$3-Million Funding

Things are really heating up in the robo-advisor scene in Singapore lately. Just three weeks ago, I mentioned that StashAway had received in-principle approval for our retail fund management license. Today, the team behind StashAway was excited to inform me that StashAway had confirmed that it had secured S$3-million for its pre-series A round. The proceeds from the round, which will close this week, will fulfil MAS’s regulatory capital requirements of S$1-million for StashAway’s retail fund management license (guess I learnt something new today), as well as go towards launching the investment service in Singapore, continually innovating the platform, and...

What If You Don’t Wake Up Tomorrow?

This blog has always been in a constant state of change. When I first started it, it was intended for myself to keep track of all the index investing resources I encountered and understood, as well as to make sense of it all. Figured I’ll keep everything on a blog since many people would be looking for the exact information like myself. Index investing was far newer and rarer a few years back. People started coming, reading, asking, and sharing. One thing led to another, and I discovered many other Singapore-based finance blogs. Even better, I learnt a great...

The Battle Of Robo-Advisors (SG Edition)

Shortly after I shared the emergence of StashAway, it does look like the battle of the robo-advisors is starting heat up right here in Singapore. First-mover advantage, you say? It has been exactly one year since I have written my first post on Smartly. Since then, I have written more posts, had a beer with Keir, tried out the Smartly beta, and finally it does seem like the clearest indication of a launch date by Smartly is going to be June 2017 as indicated on their Facebook page. On-boarding of first clients should start by then. Keir Veskiväli (Founder...

StashAway : Robo-Advisor Competitor To Smartly

Not much of updates from Smartly lately, and I know many people are still patiently waiting. Myself included. The good news for us consumers is that it now has a really strong contender in the form of StashAway. I’ve been monitoring it for a while, and looks like it has received in-principle approval for its Capital Market Services License. While another wait begins for StashAway, at the very least it is a step in the right direction for SG. Like Smartly, StashAway will be aiming to be the first to offer similar robo-advisor investment services to everyone regardless of...

Gili Lankanfushi : Choosing Your Maldives Resort. And Jetty. And Villa.

Many moons ago in November 2008, my wife and I experienced our first ever resort stay at Langkawi Lagoon Resort. We didn’t know what to expect, and what resort living is even supposed to be. We bought 5-dollars Malaysian Airlines tickets (excl. taxes) before we even decided where to stay 😉 Beach resorts. Pool villas. Spa suites. We have come really far since then! What better place than the beautiful country of Maldives to conquer next?! For first timers to Maldives, choosing a resort can be a really tough decision! This is especially true if you are not used to...
