No where to hide – Financial Assets Distress

Last week (week ended 26 October) was a terrible week for investors. I was not spared.

Investments Valuation – Cost
Singapore Equity investment (own selections) -26.5%
First State Regional China Fund SGD Acc -14.7%
LionGlobal Singapore Dividend Equity Fund SGD – A -12.1%

Considering all invested assets (excluding cash), my overall portfolio was down 4.7%. The last time I saw such poor performance was in 2016. 2017 was fairly stable.

The China equities and Singapore equities were giving me negative returns.

My own selection of Singapore stocks performed even worse than the professionally managed unit trust. A more diversified equity portfolio like the STI ETF and LionGlobal Singapore Dividend Equity Fund held up better.
