Investment Blogs And Websites
Some of us are probably still getting over the closure of the investment content website, The Motley Fool. The Motley Fool’s franchise in Singapore ceased its operation on 31 October 2019, and their investment content will be missed dearly by Singaporeans.
Despite this minor setback in the finance content scene, Singaporeans are very much well taken care of by the vibrancy of our financial blog scene.
The rest of the investment blogs and websites have got Singaporeans’ back. We urge Singaporeans to lend them our support too (and share Seedly’s article with your friends, thank you)!
How Now Brown Cow
Most investors in Singapore now will probably have a few questions in mind.
Where do we go for investment-related content and stocks analysis now?
Where are the content writers for Motley Fool at?
Are Singaporeans not deserving of good things (a debate for another day)?
Fret not, here’s a list of “good things” if you are looking for investment ideas, stocks analysis and anything to do with investing.
We present to you a compilation of the best investment blogs and websites in Singapore

His take on certain investment products and topics is really in-depth and well-researched, which is also one of the main reason for the rise in popularity amongst Singaporeans.

Communities And Platforms To Discuss Investment Ideas
On top of reading up and getting investment knowledge, joining and discussing investment ideas with a group of like-minded individuals can help one improve faster.
The community approach can also help one get more point of view for certain stocks and analysis.
Here are some platforms and communities to discuss investment ideas:
InvestingNote is of the biggest social media platform used by stock investors in Singapore. They give one free access to technical charts, stock prices and estimates from thousands of investors.
Seedly Community’s stocks discussion kicked off on their Community platform in the year 2019. Till date, way more than 4,000 investment ideas and stock tickers were discussed on the platform.
For more forum-style discussion on stocks, investors can also look at stocks discussion platforms such as ValueBuddies and Sharejunction to find out what Singaporeans are talking about for a particular stock.
With all the resources available, there is officially ZERO excuses to not kick-start your investment journey.
Before you start investing, it is important to ensure that you have enough knowledge, do not rush into any investment, and do not be afraid to ask questions!
