3 Reasons Why You Should Attend SIC2H2015
Aspire, Thought Leaders | 19 October 2015

The next FOMC is just next week (27-28 October) and while most economists think that the Fed would not raise rates this meeting, a December rate hike is still not off the table. With uncertainty of when rates will start to move, Singapore and other parts of Asia, especially China, are seeing increased volatility in stock markets.

Some bearish economists are even saying that we can expect to face a global recession soon. As investors, we are definitely worried about our positions in the stock market – should we sell or wait?

In our upcoming Shares Investment Conference 2H2015 (SIC2H2015) on 24 October (Saturday), our thought leaders will be speaking and giving valuable advice. Here are three reasons why you should not miss out this chance.

1. Highly Experienced & Sought After Speakers

It is impossible for anyone to predict how the market will move (even Warren Buffett). Nevertheless, our speakers will give you some insights and tips that can help you protect your own money, and possibly make profits even when the market is doing badly.

Dr Chan Yan Chong and Louis Wong from Hong Kong, Kevin Gin and Daniel Loh from Singapore will voice out their opinions and projections about the market in 2015 and 2016.

Is the Fed rate hike really that important or is it the journey of the hike? How would the China market be like after rates are raised? Would the world and most importantly, Singapore, be at risk of being in a recession and how can we survive? All these questions will be answered at the conference and they welcome questions from you.

2. Get Fresh Investment Ideas

As much as it is important to stick to one strategy that works for you, it is also important to be open to new investment ideas. By listening to our thought leaders, we can integrate their good practices and tips with our current strategy for modifications and improvements.

3. Special Book Offers

Achieving financial freedom is definitely not an easy feat and the journey will be tough. Our speakers, who are also our thought leaders who define the quality of our content are also authors. There will be a special discount that will only be available on the event day (24 October, Saturday).

Our thought leaders have penned down their own journey to financial freedom and the mistakes they had been through. While mistakes along our journey are inevitable, learning from the experience of these veteran investors would prevent us from making their mistakes.
