The Boring Pick That Keeps You Safe

$STI ETF(ES3.SI)$ is an ETF tracking Straits Time Index closely. It is largely dominated by the BIGBOYS in the banking and real estate sectors - DBS, Ascendas REITS and more.

So why should we be looking at $STI ETF(ES3.SI)$ ? By buying into this stock, you are instantly diversified in your SG portfolio at very relatively low expense ratio of ~0.3%. It also pays a relatively stable dividends of ~3%. Most importantly, this boring stock is NOT going to keep you awake at night. You are essentially buying a piece of Singapore economy and one thing for sure - it won't crash by 99% overnight😅 

So fellow Tiger investors looking to add a position in STI ETF, you can potentially look at supplementing it with other blue chip stocks listed in SGX. This will definitely help to lift up the overall annualised return of your portfolio.

As usual, do your own due diligence before investing any dollar into the market!

      Both are actually very similar in expense ratio amongst many others. But i chose SPDR STI ETF as it has a longer track reccord and performance is marginally better in 5 years annualized%!

      boring stocks are best for me. Performance is boring, price up and down is visible, so I can pick good trading time window.
