  • Re: Here's how to avoid scams and fraud attempts

    Hi all,
    Looking for some help and suggestions on what else I can do.
    I was subjected to a credit card scam. I have reported it to DBS, however I am still subjected to pay for the amount that I was scammed for.
    Has anyone been in this situation ?

    (2)How can I close this Multi Currency Account?
    Best regards.

  • What are some implications of the Cyberspace Administration of China’s (CAC) action to set up a regulatory foundation on the world’s second largest economy as it continues with its digital transformation and technology reforms?

    Mainland China’s New Economy, media, and education sectors have recently faced selling pressure. However, the silver lining from the policy stance in tightening the rules on China companies seeking listing in the ADR platform is that local firms are now encouraged to list closer to home, broadening the investment offerings in the onshore capital markets of Shanghai and Hong Kong. Read the full CIO Weekly report here.

    Watch this 2-min short summary on the report.

    For investors stay the course as the CIO remains constructive on the tech sector of strategic importance such as upstream technology, green energy, e-Commerce, leading health care and software applications.

    What is an ADR? American Depositary Receipt (ADR) is a security created by a U.S. bank that evidences ownership to a specified number of shares of a foreign security held in a depository in the issuing company's country of domicile.

    Do you remember how you managed that? Invest? Splurged on a holiday? Kick-started a small business? 🤔

    🎯 Set up a solid long term goal and hold yourself accountable
    There is no way that you'll one day wake up with everything you need without proper planning. This is where goal-setting and routine check-in take place. Please consider: the inflation rate, possible protection gaps, money for leisure and retirement. Use NAV Planner, a handy planning tool within your digibank app to help gain some perspective. Have your phone on you? Just log into digibank and hit 'Plan'!

    💹 Investing? Hold your horses
    Proceed with caution ONLY AFTER you've accrued at least 6 months of emergency savings (that you do not plan to touch for everyday use). Learn to observe and weigh out your risks. Once confident, aim to have Invested Assets to Net Worth ratio (Assets - Liabilities) of at least 50%. Sounds complicated? It doesn't have to be - get started with a Regular Savings Plan or explore DBS digiPortfolio.


    Top up your parents' CPF accounts
    Maximise their nest egg and get some tax relief for yours. Get dollar-for-dollar match into the Retirement Account (RA) with Matched Retirement Savings Scheme (MRSS) to help senior Singaporeans to meet their Basic Retirement Sum (BRS).

    **🙋‍♀️ Admin's note: ** If you're new here, take some time to learn (or refresh!) yourself with financial planning concepts that you might have come across previously. Having some foresight to work on your finances now can help with easing the burdens Future You might have down the road. Stay resilient, everybody!

  • I'm not sure if it's the WFH situation or what, but my impulse buying trend has gone up 😕, and this doesn't count the things we really need at home (groceries, replacing damaged item, etc). Any tips on how to stick to the budget and keep that impulse in control?
