I started serious Investing Journey in Jan 2000 to create wealth through long-term investing and short-term trading; but as from April 2013 my Journey in Investing has changed to create Retirement Income for Life till 85 years old in 2041 for two persons over market cycles of Bull and Bear.

Since 2017 after retiring from full-time job as employee; I am moving towards Investing Nirvana - Freehold Investment Income for Life investing strategy where 100% of investment income from portfolio investment is cashed out to support household expenses i.e. not a single cent of re-investing!

It is 57% (2017 to Aug 2022) to the Land of Investing Nirvana - Freehold Income for Life!

Read? How To Get Super Investing Returns

Companies such as Jardine Matheson (SGX: J36), Dairy Farm (SGXL D01) and Keppel Corporation (SGX: BN4) can by no stretch of the imagination be described as a Microsoft. But over the last decade or so, they have, nevertheless, delivered outstanding returns.

The secret to super investing returns is therefore time, patience and continually compounding the dividends that you receive year after year after year. It is really that simple because investing is not hard.

Read? 3 Important Words You Should Remember When Investing

In investing, a good mantra to remember, in my opinion, is this: “Keep it simple.” We do not need to know everything about every company; we just need to know what we are good at and stick to it.

For example, Keppel Corp (SGX: BN4) might be an overly complex company for some with its disparate business segments. Its businesses deal with offshore & marine (it builds vessels and oil rigs), infrastructure (it has logistics operations, warehouses, and even rents out data centre capacity amongst other activities), and real estate (it develops and owns many different types of properties). If you have trouble understanding Keppel Corp, there’s no need to force yourself to understand it even if everyone around you is constantly harping about the company. There are always plenty of other fishes in the ocean.

Foolish Summary

When learning about investing, you do not need to be thrown off when you come across something you cannot understand or had happened to talk to someone who was throwing out jargon after jargon. All you need to do is to remember this three simple words: “Keep it simple”. Simple is often all you need in investing.


  1. Unfortunately, in practice, compounding of dividends from Kep Corp is done in CPF OA @ 2.5% rate earning peanut returns. :-(

    Read? CPF OA rate @ 2.5% on regular CPF investment income peanuts return???

  2. Agreed but do you recommend to reinvest all the dividends received without bothering of the price paid to purchase the additional shares or ???

    1. They said your profit is determined at entry price and not at the exit price so we have to justify for ourselves the entry level. Right?
