What a load of rubbish. Investing in stock without doing research is downright gambling. And if you do tons of research then it is not "passive".

Stjz91 Have u considered an alternative as to investing in wine as an asset which is still a relatively new concept, well at least in Singapore, hence it is seldom discussed.
Good news is that many major financial advisors are recommending fine wines as investments to their clients.
Even companies like Morgan Stanley are encouraging investors to diversify with wine, reason being it is a stable asset, regardless of the geopolitical, cultural, and economic challenges that equity market investors are likely to face.
When we speak of investments, what comes to your mind first?
Stocks bonds equity.
Alternative investments? Antiques, watches, vintage cars, paintings, which I can safely say caters to the well-heeled individuals.

Introducing fine wine, quite simply plays on a different field to these types of investments, with a relatively low-entry cost.
While stocks can rise and fall for any reason, including a simple Tweet by a prominent politician, the value of fine wine is determined by plain old supply and demand.
Demand for fine wine around the globe is rising, especially as more developing countries develop a taste for luxury products.
The fact that wine has been a popular product for millennia is a testament to its stability in uncertain economic conditions.
I could go on and on about the advantages but a quick google search will do the deed if you are keen.

Fine wine investment has virtually zero correlation with the stock market, making it stable even during times of economic uncertainty. During the recession of 2007/8 the S&P 500 plunged 38.5%. In contrast, the Liv-ex 1000, the market-leading index for fine wine, dipped by just 0.6%. The same pattern emerged in March 2020 when the S&P 500 fell by 25% while the Liv-ex 1000 slipped barely 4%.

hope16 what we are looking for is financial freedom. which means passive income is greater than active income. Currently, my passive income is greater than my full time job. I have found the tool to create this passive income for myself and those who are closest to me. Those who are interested in generating your own passive income, drop me a message and i will share more. Cheers!

Never heard of Stashaway, will look at it, thanks for sic
My blunt advice is forget about passive income. Go spend 100% effort on getting a job, and a job you can do well in.

Passive income is for people who have leftover savings from income, and want to know how to grow that savings. The limiting factor for you is job income, not how to invest.

Of course every investment has risks and you decide how much risk you can stomach. To me this is least intimidating because the process is clear cut and the chances of you being 'cheated' is very low.

1. Take the sgx modules necessary to open a CDP account.
2. Open an account with your chosen brokerage firm (DBS vickers, UOB, etc)
3. Buy your stocks via your brokerage firm app.
4. If you are keeping for long term, the stocks must be delivered to your CDP within 3 days and they are under your name.
5. Profit / Loss depends on when you sell, and the only fees you pay are to your broker, GST and clearing fees to SGX.


This is a good time to think about buying stocks because most of them have lost a 25 to 30% of their pre-covid value. People say the 'safer' blue-chip stocks are majority owned by Temasek, like Singtel. Not saying that just because there is Temasek, your investment is totally safe. If for some reason they decide to bail and sell off, the value will likely plunge. However, if there is one thing I have learnt from observation, bad times dont last forever.

Which leads me to your parents losing a lot and you are afraid of 'playing stocks'. My take on why many people say or have parents who 'lost a lot' is they probably bought expecting prices to go up, but panicked and sold off when the stock prices plunged in times of crises.

A more rational response would be to evaluate whether the company can weather the crisis and grow in future and if you can hold off cashing out for a few years. Using Singtel as an example, chances of it collapsing are very slim and yes there are competitors, but even if its price plunges for the whole of this year and longer, I am confident it would recover. And it did indeed recover from its ~ $3.50 plunge to ~ $2.50 in 2008, although over the next decade.

To be frank though, there is no way you can live off dividends investing in SGX stocks unless you have a lot of money lying around, which from your post seems unlikely.
Got to take modules before can open a CDP account?!

Very difficult to study for or not?
