Money Talks Podcast: How to invest your first S$100,000


Dexter Tiah was only two years into his first job when he accumulated enough to start his first S$100,000 investment portfolio.

The investor and author of the personal finance book Laughs, Losses and Lessons, shares with Andrea Heng how he achieved this.

I put a large chunk of my monthly salary, I put my bonus that I received into investments, and those were the kind of steps that I needed to take in order to reach this goal (of a S$100,000 portfolio).
