Good Financial Journalist That Could Shape Your View in Investing


My Investing Mentor :


We often seek for “ Guru “ or mentors in our journey of investing and this person represents a role model, someone you look up to and wanted to emulate for all the right reasons. Some may pick international renowned and successful investment gurus like Warren Buffet , Peter Lynch , George Soros , Seth Klarman , Walter Schloss etc.


You may notice from my brief explanation in “ About me” that my interest in investing came from reading articles from one of the financial business journalist of Malaysia newspaper in early days.

He is Mr 冯时能 ( aka 冷眼 ) , a business editor of 南洋商报Nanyang Siang Pau in 1980s. His article really have deep impact and shaped my view about value investing. Many of my thoughts and investment philosophy also being influenced by him. Some bloggers ever calculated his investment portfolio value estimated to more than RM30 millions in 2009, by now may be much higher. ( base on company filing of top 20 shareholders ). The real figure might be much more than this as his holding in big cap company may not appear as top 20 shareholders .

$how Me the Money


When I start working in Singapore , I like to read article from Ms Tey Hooi Ling , an ex-SPH scholar and business journalist from The Business Time. I enjoy reading her articles which have full of wisdom and insight about investing from market abnormality to behavioral finance and investment philosophy.

AN INTERVIEW WITH TEH HOOI LING





I bought all her book , “ $how Me the Money “ series :


Hooi Ling left The BT and joined Aggregate Asset Management in 2013 ( what a pity as I really miss her good insight and articles in The BT ) ,, but good for her to pursue her own interest and career in Fund Management.

I think this fund has quite unique set-up as you will only being charged when they perform, also one will need to “lock in “ their fund for at least 3 years else penalty may apply. Guess this should not be any problem for long term investors as the longer period of investing , the higher probability of wining the market .

TYD Return of almost 40% since inception in Dec 2012 is quite impressive especially they still could make +ve return in 2015 while STI was down by almost -16%. Base on some of the interview about the fund , I think they are using the “ Smart Beta " strategy eg filtering deep value stocks base on  PB/PE and doing the trimming and asset re-allocation on yearly basis .

The New BT Weekend


Reading this article in today’s The BT , which they will unveil a new look and content reboot for its weekend edition this Saturday. As mentioned earlier , I really miss the good articles from Ms Tey Hooi Ling and I couldn’t find one with such insight or as comparable in today’s The BT .




I think the “ content is much more important than the “ out look or appearance “ especially for business newspaper .

What do you think ?


Cheers !

  1. Leng Yan is also one key guru that influenced my investing method and mindset greatly.. Strongly encourage those who have good command in chinese to read his books..

    Perhaps as someone w chinese as native language, I find his concepts and articles much more relatable and resonates with me.. Could also be due to the beauty of chinese language being able to describe and evoke emotions better..

    I have both his hardcover books. How many books did he author?
