Making an investment plan

Filed under: Investing — indexfundfan @ 9:01 pm

Before beginning on any long journey, it is important to make a good plan to maximize the chances of success. It is the same with investing – it is prudent to make an appropriate investment plan so that it can guide the investor though the investing journey. This article attempts to address the basic steps to making an investment plan and constructing an appropriate asset allocation.

The above is taken from an article which I wrote in August 2005 about how to make an investment plan in the Singapore context. It had already been posted online elsewhere but to read it there required a registration. Now, you can get the PDF from the link below, no registration required! 🙂
