Above is the progress of me reaching my targeted financial goals for December 2020. As you can see from the chart, the total value of my financial assets have grown by a 2.70% from November. I am around 50% from reaching my financial target. Let us hope it stays that way next year.
The stock market rallied in December. With the so called “Santa Claus Rally“, the stock market tends to rally in December heading into the Christmas holidays. The availability and distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine was an added stimulus to the bullish stock market. At this time of writing, Bitcoin also surpasses all-time high at USD 23K.
The total value of my financial assets comprised of the following
- Insurance savings (NTUC RevoSave, Singlife, Dash EasyEarn)
- Savings accounts (POSB, OCBC, CIMB)
- Singapore Savings Bonds
- Current value of my stocks
- Supplementary Retirement Scheme
“A big part of financial freedom is having your heart and mind free from worry about the what-ifs of life.”
One tip to grow your wealth is to be discipline and consistent in controlling what you buy and contribution to the different buckets. The buckets that are safe haven are NTUC RevoSave, Singlife, Dash EasyEarn, SRS that I have built up over the years.
The more risky and volatile buckets are stocks and forex.
Singapore Savings Bonds
In December, I have collected the following interest payout from the Singapore Savings Bonds I have bought every month over the years.
- December 2018 (GX18120X)
- June 2018 (GX18060H)
- June 2019 (GX19060H)
This month, my savings got a boost from the dividend payout from Frasers Logistics & Industrial Trust. Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust makes up 12.88% of my stock portfolio.
My forex investment outperformed this month as well, with more than ROI of 10%. I am a newbie into this. Basically just copied whatever my friend trades.
