  • How to re-balance your portfolio over time
  • How you can achieve your retirement goals with low-cost investing
  • The importance of low-cost investing with an Adviser you trust

Jenny Chiam, Senior Vice President, Head of Securities – Singapore Exchange :

“A good follow up book by Andrew Hallam, extolling the need to be self-reliant in our investing for our retirement. Andrew writes with a clear and logical thought process.”

James Dalziel, Ed.D, Head of East Campus, United World College of South East Asia, Singapore :

“I have purchased a copy of this book for every member of my staff. It should be mandatory reading for any expatriate corporate or educational wellness program!”

Who is Andrew Hallam?

In his own words, “I’m a freelance finance writer, lucky enough to have been nominated as a finalist for two Canadian National Publishing Awards. I’m also the author of Millionaire Teacher: The Nine Rules of Wealth You Should Have Learned in School, a book explaining how I became a millionaire on a teacher’s salary, while still in my 30s.” On his website, you can find plenty of useful information which would make a good read for novice investors.
