ETFs for passive investment in a cost-efficient manner

The fees attached to ETFs under Singapore’s four leading fund houses are the lowest among all financial products available in this market. It includes annuity plans and insurance policies that do not beat inflation over long periods.

Access to markets across different geographies

ETFs track indexes that represent the equity markets of multiple countries simultaneously, allowing investors to gain exposure to foreign economies without having to invest overseas directly via forex trades or buy into single stocks on their own. Furthermore, diversification is achieved at meagre costs.

Ease of use with high turnover ratios

With just $1000 (SGD) needed to purchase an ETF in Singapore, the barrier to entry for investing is extremely low. The average turnover ratio of these funds in Singapore is very high at 1,326% per annum. It means that ETFs are relatively liquid and can be used to meet short-term needs due to their quick turnaround times.

The most beautiful woman in the world, for most exotic beauty, goes to Jennifer Connelly. I cannot get her hair out my head from the movie Blood Diamond. Of course, she’s in the bushes in West Africa following the story of conflict diamonds and doesn’t have time to setup an appointment with a hairdresser. But when someone can be that gorgeous even under those circumstances, that’s what drives me wild. Forget the fact that I’ve been in love with her since I first saw her in Labyrinth and I’ve followed her career throughout some of my most favorite movies including House of Sand and Fog, Dark Water, and He’s Just Not That Into You. Jennifer Connelly steals away with the most beautiful woman in the world for most exotic beauty.

The most beautiful woman in the world, for being an unexpected hottie, goes to Jenna Fischer. I started watching The Office when it first came out in 2005 and I noticed the cute receptionist behind the desk. I loved the way she flirted with Jim and dealt with Michael. I was actually rooting for Jim and now he finally is with her, with a child and the whole nine yards. But then, I saw her on the cover of Shape in November 2009. It seriously was one of those Wow moments. Who in the world is that? The hottest little hottie to grace the cover of Shape, and I had no idea that
