Money Hacks Ep 66: Should you invest your CPF money in a turbulent market?

9:06 min

Synopsis: In this fortnightly podcast series on Mondays, The Business Times breaks down actionable financial tips.

In this week's episode, we talk about CPF investments, and if you should invest them in a turbulent market. Gregory Van, chief executive and founding partner of Endowus, the only digital investment adviser that now has a CPF investment option, gives us his views.

1. What is the difference between traditional CPF investment schemes and digital schemes? Are there hidden fees? (1:02)

2. In a turbulent market now worsened by the coronavirus threat, should you invest your CPF funds? (4:09)

3. CPF is your long-term money. How can it perform if you take a similar long-term market view versus just leaving it in CPF? (5:14)

4. Invest wisely, strategically, not tactically. Strategic investment means a long-term approach, whereas a tactical investment means trying to beat the market with constant changes. Find out the pros and cons of such approaches (9:29)
