Safe haven assets and equities draw Singapore investors' interest

Investors over 40 prefer Singapore stocks.

Facing uncertain markets, eight of ten Singapore investors lean towards a combination of safe haven assets and equities.

Amongst asset classes, Fullerton Fund Management said Singaporeans identified fixed deposits, government bonds and Singapore equities as the three best investment options.

"The younger demographic more bullish on equities than their senior counterparts," the report added.

The report also found that investors over 40 have a "home bias," preferring Singapore stocks, whilst younger ones prefer global stocks.

"This disparity may suggest a trend where younger investors lean towards growth-centric investment strategies, while older investors gravitate towards familiar markets that are perceived as more stable or valued for their dividend yields," the report stated.

Fullerton Fund Management also found that Singaporean investors are interested in non-traditional assets and emerging structural themes.

In Singapore, about four in five (79%) investors wanted exposure to sectors that align with the broader direction of the future global economy in areas such as biomedicine, artificial intelligence, and sustainable energy.
