Portfolio concept wise - ok. U should add CPF contribution as well then u can see that your portfolio is probably balanced. 50% savings / 50% REIT&Equity

I will also time the injection into REITs and equity.
There are those that say you cannot time the market. Well, but i cant stand to see losses so i only enter when i am more confident the direction is right. Otherwise, any stupid robot also can invest.
U also need to keep balancing the portfolio every 6 -12 months. ie if you did not execute any trades in 6 months due to conservative behaviour, then inject some at the 6/12 month mark and rebalance REITs with growth stock when the market is on the uptrend. Current market sentiment is very down so growth stocks are all taking a beating.

Whatever i dont inject goes into war chest that will be deployed when i view the timing is right.
