A performance update on Robo-advisors Syfe, Stashaway and DBS Digiportfolio- September 2021
29 September 2021
Robo-advisors are great as a springboard into investing for beginners. As I being the transition into DIY investing, I would still like to share on my experiences and performances of my portfolios here.
My initial capital together with the other two Robos was a test to see which of their strategy I prefer.
For the past few months, I have Dollar Dost Average (DCA) into my Robos, except DBS Digi portfolio as I wanted to back out of there when I had an opportunity. It has mostly been red, so I finally decided to back out of DBS Digi portfolio when I had a chance.
Although DBS is a solid and reliable platform, there are many downsides such as the poor SGD to USD exchange rate, and the global portfolio requires an investor pre-assessment (If we are financial-savvy, why would we still need to pay your DBS team for the portfolio? DUH). I will cover more of this downsides at a later date.
Let’s jump right into the updates!
Syfe’s Equity 100 performance dropped a bit, but it is still going strong
Reits are doing well too! But I have decided to pull ouut 3/4 of m Reits to invest in VWRA as it is a more sensible growth asset.
I have withdraw all of DBS Digiportfolio this month, despite the slight loss. I no longer believe in it’s investing strategies. I will cover more on this in the future.
Despite the difference in performance, all three platforms have their own pros and cons which I will cover more next time!
Robo advisors are well-rounded investment platforms catered for those who are new to investments (like me) or have limited time to actually do stock pickings. Definitely worth your time to check it out!
