- Investments should be seen as part of one's financial planning and long term goals.
- Having a goal keeps you motivated to stay invested whether it is good times or bad times
- If you are very clear of your goal, if you know the reason why you are doing, then there is a better chance that even through tough times, you will stay throughout for your investment.
- The collapse of US banking giant Lehman Brothers in 2008 proved that no financial institution is too big to fail. And for some investors in Singapore, it was a painful lesson to learn that no investment is risk-free.
