About Me

Hello there! Welcome to my humble blog.

I'm your average young adult looking to survive in what is currently known as the World's Most Expensive Country, Singapore!

And maybe you already realised, that with the rising costs of living in Singapore as well as a slowly but ever increasing rate of inflation, would you be able to earn a decent living?

It's never too early to begin planning for your retirement. The earlier you start with a plan, the higher your chances of success. Even if you go wrong somewhere, there's still time for you to get back up on your feet and try again.

Start planning for your future today. Feel free to follow me @ teenageinvestor on twitter!

Why did I create this blog?

As a student, I've always enjoyed writing and reading. English was my strongest subject. I DO NOT claim to be a financial expert or a professional investor. Honestly, talk to the average Singaporean about "investments" or "stock market" and they might mock you. TV Dramas all over the world have given us the conception that investing are only for the wealthy and powerful. Or that by investing in the stock market, you are liable to lose a few million overnight.

Believe it or not, I used to be the same. I began my first investment by experimenting and reading up on the various finance blogs and books. I was filled with all sorts of jumbled information. Many times, I thought of giving up. That I would figure it out later.

What I'm trying to say is, don't be afraid to learn. I am also learning. And this blog is my way of documenting my experiences and what I have learnt. It may or may not be accurate or to your taste but that's alright. Because we're all learning.

However, writing all about money and investments can be extremely boring. Readers should also understand that there is more to life than that. Appreciate the little things in life for we're all human. Investing in our future is a mixture of both monetary and life experiences. Therefore I will also post on current affairs that involve monetary matters.

Take that first step today. That leap of faith. Take charge of your future today.


  1. Hi Teenage Investor,

    Anyway agree your quote

    "However, writing all about money and investments can be extremely boring. Readers should also understand that there is more to life than that."

    Keep up the good work.

    1. Hi Rolf,
      You're too kind. Thank you for the compliment! I may be slightly more mature than my peers because circumstances in my life have forced me to be and in some ways, I am thankful for that.

      Best Regards

  2. Great to see more teenager retail investor-cum-blogger here. Keep your posts coming and enjoy your investing journey

  3. Great to see you ahead of your peers! 2 questions:

    1. Who or what started you on this path?
    2. If you have not reached the age to open investing account at brokerages, what are you doing now to gain practical experience?

    1. Thank you!
      Personally, I found my way to investments after an experience of almost getting tricked into joining a MLM company. I thought, there has to be a way to achieve financial freedom without such tricks of MLM.
      Thankfully, I managed to gain experience through BCIP and POSB Invest Saver and some experiment.

  4. Hi Teenage Investor,

    1. Hi Ken! Coins is an interesting way to foray into the investment world.

  6. Hi Teenage investor, may I know what course you are studying? I am just curious about it but the main question would be, how do you really start investing in shares as wouldn't it be time consuming to analyse stocks and got to face the risk of losing your principal?
