Performance update on Robo-advisors Syfe and Stashaway – October 2021
Hello friends and dear readers! It has been a busy time for me lately as I need to complete my assignment for school on top of my work, apologies for the slow updates. For my in depth views on Robo-advisors please check it out here.
It has been a long journey with Syfe since the start of the year, have closed my REITs portfolio to focus on just Equity100 and my DIY investments. I felt that REITs were too slow for my taste, I prefer growth to passive dividends. Besides, my capital was too low for the dividends to be a significant amount (I would recommend at least 10k or more).
You may refer to my previous updates for a performance comparison between this two portfolio.
This is one portfolio I am considering to close down too in my move to be independent from Robo-advisors. Despite it’s popularity in Singapore, it may not be a good choice for me as the management fees are rather high with subpar performance. Do note that many users reported a higher rate for Stashaway portfolio in 2020, so it is not a consistently bad performance. A food for thought!
The performance is just a small factor. What I dislike is that their ERAA strategy keeps changing (from gold allocation to china equities), sometimes it makes little sense. I can put this money to use better off elsewhere.
I hope you gain a better insight into these two Robos! My DCA strategy is$50 every two weeks ($100 a month) to take advantage of the market volatility.
