Well-invested time at The Sunday Times Invest Seminar

More than 600 people turned up on 14 April for the inaugural The Sunday Times Invest Seminar, presented by DBS Bank.

The event was organised by The Sunday Times to provide retail investors an opportunity to hear the views of veteran financial journalists and experts from DBS Bank on the global economy, business trends and investment strategies.

Straits Times senior writer, Andy Mukherjee kick-started the session with his outlook on major economies. After him was DBS Private Bank chief investment officer Lim Say Boon who shared on how opportunities can be found despite continuing volatility in the equity markets.

The highlight of the day saw a robust participation from the audience at the panel discussion segment featuring Straits Times editor Lee Su Shyan and senior correspondent Goh Eng Yeow, alongside with DBS’s Philip Wee, senior currency economist and Brandon Lam, head of consumer investment and insurance products.

Participants like Mr Chong Chun Siang, a 27-year-old civil servant said, “The event gave me various perspectives on how the markets are moving and the fundamental concepts of investing, which is very important these days, when there is a lot of speculation and exotic products on the market.”

Mr Ignatius Low, News editor of The Straits Times said, “This seminar is especially meaningful because there are not that many seminars for retail investors from a neutral party. I am very encouraged by this success.” He added that this event would be an annual affair for the newspaper and its readers.
