Default 1 Million SGD

I've recently come into a sum of 1 mil SGD.

Seeking help from any gurus here on ideas on how to invest it.

I'm aiming for capital protection and recurrent income.

Thanks for any advice in advance.

buy 1 studio condo with full cash, and the other 2rm/3rm condos with 20% downpayments, rent them out and you should be more or less secured with your investment.

thanks for the advice, dellysunny.

definitely still considering property purchase, but due to the 40%LTV that means a higher quantum for investment (as i have other property loans) and the 4 yr SSD is very put-offing. plus Singapore residential property looks very expensive now.

Besides property (which is sky high now), consider buying some high dividend stocks like Starhub, which easily gives >5% dividend year after year. Leave some cash in 1% interest savings account, so you can exploit investment opportunities when the crash comes.
