Investors reduce exposure to US markets in May: broker

TD Ameritrade said its clients' score in the Investor Movement Index dropped to 5.74.

Singaporean investors reduced further their exposure to US markets in May, according to MAS-licensed broker, TD Ameritrade.

In its latest Investor Movement Index (IMX), the broker reported that its Singaporean clients measured 5.74, a drop from its previous score of 6.10 in April.

IMX measures what investors were doing and how they were positioned in the markets.

Despite reducing their exposure in May, Singaporean investors were net buyers of equities overall and particularly favoured Tesla (TSLA) and Amazon (AMZN).

In terms of sectors, TD Ameritrade’s Singaporean clients were net buyers of communication services, consumer discretionary, consumer staples, financials, information technology, materials, and real estate.

Meanwhile, local investors were net sellers of American Airlines (AAL), Delta Airlines (DAL), and United Airlines (UAL) as “inflation continued to cloud the economic picture,” said the broker.

Where to invest your millions in real estate
Amongst locations, realtors suggest the Core Central Region.   Individuals seeking shelter in the real estate market amidst the rising inflation must consider three things before deciding where to invest their millions in.   George Tan, managing director of Savills Digital Residential Marketing, said one of these factors is location.    Tan said buyers should consider areas which are highly demanded and well located—easy access to prestigious or international schools, MRT, malls and food and beverage (F&B) establishments. All these will contribute to good rental demand.   PropNex realtor, Andy Lim, echoed this, adding that buyers should particularly invest in properties within one kilometre of the prestigious schools.
