Please Help, IFA recommendations in Singapore

Postby scottsingapore » Sat, 03 Sep 2011 8:04 pm

Hi there,

Hi have just retired to Singapore and and am looking to build up my retirement investment portfolio.

I am particularly interested in alternative investments in the carbon market...

Please can anyone recommend some good independant financial advisors to assist me with this?

Many thanks,

Scott

This should be in the joke section. Those mickey mouse IFA's wouldn't know carbon from cardboard.

Do it yourself. If you are already retired and have a lump sum, one of the global banks can look after your money and give you access to the carbon trading desk. Or, alternatively, just do your own research and pick a carbon fund and go direct to the fund house.
