Hi Kyith, Just wonder wouldn't I be better off if I invest my $ in STI ETF than having my $ in SSB? STI ETF would have a higher return in the long run.

Hi Lemonade, good question. Returns may be higher, but so are volatility. And different people understand volatility differently. Your purpose for this financial instrument may also be different.

For example, for Kyith i use it to park my spare cash waiting to be deployed. If i find an opportunity i could liquidate it knowing i have $50,000 to deploy. I cant say the same for STI ETF. The value may be 20% more, 20% less depending on where the volatility bring me.

Hi Kyith ,

I have been following your blog for a few years now and got introduced to Gannon and his rigorous approach in the previous (Hedgehog investing ) now known as Focused Compounding. I find your approach to investing as solid as well.

I also noticed that your main holdings are in REITs and having worked in a REIT for 4 years, understand that this is a good investment .

You also purchased quite alot of K1 Ventures recently, and I am just curious on the basis of your rather large investment , assuming your portfolio of 300-400k, that would be an over 10% allocation.

Thank you for sharing your insights .

Hi Verseun, thanks for visiting my blog. K1 Ventures is a special situation where the management have indicated to Guggenheim to buy back their warrants, preference shares. It is what value that we will get. As of now i view this as a wrong decision because i did not factored in costs and taxes that well in my figures.

I am curious that you said REITs are good investments, I suppose they might be limited returns but they do offer some niche advantages that its hard to find in other investments.

I am not as good as Geoff and Hoang. I can only fake it till i make it haha.
