Should Singaporeans start investing on stock markets overseas?
Singapore has one of the world’s highest smartphone penetration rates and the vast majority of us have internet connectivity. Singapore’s market is naturally where I would start my investing journey and many of us trade or invest in companies listed on the SGX. What are the other reasons why Singapore is a good place to start investing on stocks overseas?
Singaporeans should start investing because of the market size. Our total market capitalization as of June 2016 is about S$898 billion but is nothing compared to apple and other big companies. We can think and assume that the market wont grow bigger that it should if it were to be recognized in other countries such as the US.
