  • Quality of Life: What happened to Singapore’s trump card relative to Hong Kong?
  • When it comes to populism, is Asia on a different trajectory than the rest of the world? What will this mean for investment returns?
  • An in-depth update on global commodity trading by Mike Coleman: Why buy-and-hold does not work
  • Why gold is a monetary asset, and not a commodity
  • Why robo-advisory can be even cheaper than ETFs
