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!

Over the 20-year period that ended 31 March 2016, the GIC Portfolio generated an annualised real1 return of 4.0% (Figure 1) above global inflation

GIC’s mandate is to achieve good long-term returns. The primary metric for evaluating GIC’s investment performance is the rolling 20-year real rate of return. The goal is expressed in real terms because GIC must, at a minimum, beat global inflation and preserve the international purchasing power of the reserves placed under its management.

Over the 20-year period that ended 31 March 2016, the GIC Portfolio generated an annualised real1 return of 4.0% (Figure 1) above global inflation. In nominal USD2 terms, the portfolio generated an annualised return of 5.7% over the 20 years that ended 31 March 2016. This means that US$100 invested with GIC in 1996 would have grown to US$303 today.

Still OK lah!


  1. CW,

    Peter Lynch is the smartest because he was in the golden years and know when to exit his career. The period when you are in is important also lar!

    By the way, also not fair to compare our return to GIC in % because when your portfolio is so huge it is more difficult to manage to get the respectable returns. There is also rules related to funds in buy and sell, but just like retail people, suka suka can buy and sell in small.

    1. Ha Ha.. This is also true. So many "Gurus" teaching Warren method.

  2. Ha! Ha!
    What method?
    No lah.
    Any "Rojak method" will do.
    As long as you make money is O.K.
    Is best method already.
    Actually there is no holy grail in investing but your own.��

  3. wah uncle list got longer. I see david tepper liao.

    1. When we see how the World's best result and will make us think of reality what we can really achieve as retail investors.

      4 to 5% CAGR over decades is not bad liao.

  4. Agree.
    Especially after minus inflation.
    If there is no inflation why bother to take high risk in stock investing.
